The “Fail Whale” is a graphic of a whale held up by a flock of birds showcased when Twitter is experiencing Overload. While being scary at times(just kidding), the Fail Whale is surprisingly a vibrant topic within the Twitter community. Twitter’s inability to stay upfloat has managed to spin off and create a nature of its own. We have all* experienced it ones, twice, or maybe a multiple amount of times. In case you are wondering the Fail Whale was created by Yiying Lu, a Chinese illustrator.
