Twitter usually encounters a little bit of trouble when big events occur, such as the recent US presidential elections.

However, to users delight, Twitter was able to handle a staggering 300,000 tweets a minute with hardly any ‘Fail Whale’ complaints.

The demand lasted for a fair few hours of election day, which makes the results of Twitters handling capability, all the more impressive.

With such sporting events, like the Olympics or Euro 2012, Twitter has actually seemed to cope with the constant chatter pretty well over the recent months.

Could this mean we have finally seen the end of the dreaded ‘Fail Whale’?
