Twitter is having some serious problems in staying up following the Netherlands’ 2-1 come-from-behind upset of World Cup favorite Brazil Friday. The social networking site has found it hard to stay up during the event, frequently coming down following the final whistle of major matches.
On the company’s status page, Twitter acknowledged the problem, but didn’t lay the blame on the World Cup match. “We’ve received reports of elevated error rates for users; we’re currently investigating,” it reads. The last time Twitter’s Failwhale was making a regular appearance was on the 23rd of June, the day of Algeria’s match with USA that catapulted it into the first knockout round.
