Twitter’s Fail Whale Art Competition

08/07/2008 —

De Fail Whale volgens Wikipedia:

Twitter experienced approximately 98% uptime in 2007, or about 3 full days of downtime.[28][29] Twitter’s downtime was particularly noticeable during events popular with the technology industry, such as the 2008 Macworld Conference & Expo keynote address.[30][31] When Twitter crashes, users see the “fail whale” error message. Beluga whales are known as ‘canaries of the sea’ due to their high-pitched twitter[32], and the fail whale is a whimsical illustration of red birds using nets to hoist a whale from the ocean.[33] The message reads: “Too many tweets! Please wait a moment and try again.”[33] The fail whale has been featured on NPR.[20] Bron: Wikipedia

Maak je eigen Fail Whale Pale Ale Art en win mooie prijzen! In de jury zit onder andere de maker van de Fail Whale. De eerste Fail Whale werd ontworpen door Yiying Lu en kent, sinds wat problemen bij Twitter, steeds meer bekendheid op internet. Van T-shirts (die je zelf kan customizen), een Flickr Gallery en Shops tot Facebook Groups, een 3D Fail Whale en een heuse fanclub. Nu dus ook een competitie!
