Whalewatching – Fail whale sightings from June to October

After I saw the fail whale on Twitter again after a long whale-free period, I thought it was time to actualize my timeline of whale sightings. The first fail whale had been spotted last June. And after five months this meme is still going strong.

Some users feared that they would not be able to see the fail whale after Twitter announced having solved a lot of their uptime issues – but as you see in this chart, there have been whale sightings all through September.

The latest spike had been the Twitter redesign on 20 September which got the Twitterati puzzling whether their favorite cetacean had also been given a face-lift. Rest assured – this had not been the case.
