Meet Twitter’s new, more optimistic mascot

Avid Twitter users will no doubt be familiar with the ‘Fail Whale’, a picture that regularly showed up when the service was over-capacity. That has become increasingly rare, however, and Yiying Lu, who designed the first image, has come up with a new one: the Success Loch Ness. 

As she explains: “@tomspano (Events Manager of @Twitter) asked me, ‘Since Twitter’s now became more and more stable, there’s less chance for folks to see your “Fail Whale” image. How about something opposite from the Fail Whale? – Success Whale?” Everyone goes “Nah, that doesn’t rhyme!”@semel then proposed: “How about the Success Loch Ness?!”
