Twitter is over capacity

I like friendly error messages; I don’t think you can get much cuter than Twitter’s over capacity error message:

Twitter error message
Twitter error message

I just love how the whale is smiling. It makes it such a better error message. I don’t think many companies would be game to use a whale on their capacity error page (if they even had one) but in this case it just works.
