Where's Twitter?


If you have noticed that your Twitter home page is looking a bit odd lately, it is not your fault. Personally, I have no pictures of all the people I am following on Twitter. So what's going on?

As you can read in my above blog, Apple is set to announce the new iPhone. All day this news has people running wild. Not only that, but they are all about to "tweet" something that explains their madness. This is why Twitter could enter a "grey mode". Their grey mode allows Twitter to remove a lot of online clutter, such as pictures and background images, that will not slow down the site and worse make the site crash as it frequently does. They have to do this to accommodate all the extra tweets during the WWDC, Worldwide Developers Conference, where Apple is set to unleash the new iPhone. Will Twitter's plan to handle the tweet overload actually work? Probably not. But I have been wrong at least once before, so we will have to wait and see.
