Fail Whale spotted off the coast of Twitter

So, I just had my first viewing (I think) of the Fail Whale. Very cool.

I’ve heard plenty stories about the Twitter Fail Whale and have now seen it for myself. A rare sighting (like any whale, ofcourse) the Twitter Fail Whale arrives when Twitter’s servers are at capacity with the number of tweets passing through. TFW (The Fail Whale) has grown into an internationally known craze, sporting a merchandise range and many various articles discussing it’s sightings and general habits.

For those who have yet to see the Fail Whale, it looks something like this:
