A annoying blue whale that turns up on the homescreen when popular social networking site Twitter goes overcapacity.
It is depicted as being carried by a flock of blue birds (the Twitter "mascots") to show that the load taken by the microblogging site is to huge to be processed.
In my opinion, it's plain irritating.
If Twitter goes overcapacity again, Imma throw that damn #Failwhale into the oilspill
