Twitter could not handle New Year twits

Written by Nick Farell



Network crashed


Social network Twitter ground to a halt yesterday as it was overloaded with New Year messages.

In Blighty the site crashed at about 3pm on New Year's Eve for more than an hour. Apparenty that was because the Japan were sending a record 16,197 tweets per second as midnight turned. The overload meant no one could post new messages or read existing ones.

Instead, frustrated users were greeted with the error message: 'Twitter is over capacity.' It came back online but was knocked out by the arrival of New Year in different parts of the world with big population centres.

The world's most famous Apple Fanboy the Pope told his traditional New Year's Eve service which were were not invited too after being excommunicated for saying nasty things about Apple that he was awaiting a New Year with the “trepidation, desires and expectations” of always. While he probably just meant an iPad 3, we agree with him this time.
