This is hilarious. It appears that Twitter is DDOSing itself.
The Twitter home feed's been down for most of this morning. Even though nothing loads, the Twitter website never stops trying and trying.
In the first video, notice the error message that I'm being rate limited. Then notice the jiggling scrollbar on the right.
The second video shows why it's jiggling. Twitter is firing off about 10 requests a second to itself to try and fetch content that never arrives because Elon's latest genius innovation is to block people from being able to read Twitter without logging in.
This likely created some hellish conditions that the engineers never envisioned and so we get this comedy of errors resulting in the most epic of self-owns, the self-DDOS.
Unbelievable. It's amateur hour.
unironically want to have "you are a cisgender" screamed at me over a $3 headset while playing COD.
Elon's Twitter nonsense
I wonder how long it'll be before we get sources saying Elon's engaging in stochastic terrorism.
After his "cis is a slur" debacle last night, we saw a rise vandalism relating to that on Wikipedia. How long before he starts amplifying GAG, or LOTT's nonsense and it starts having an offline effect?
