Twitter’s Creative Error Messages

The now-infamous Fail Whale isn’t Twitter’s only creative way of responding to problems with its service. As I discovered last week while creating a Twitter list of everyone involved with WordCamp Boston, the folks behind the service have some other, equally creative, graphics to inform users that something has gone wrong.

Twitter: "Something is technically wrong. Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon."
Twitter's error indicating something has substantially gone awry.
