The World Cup destroys everything

Since the start of the World Cup, twitter has its issues just like officials at the tournament. Since most of the games are played during the weekdays and I use the social networking site for work, I have noticed something about site, it can not handle the World Cup. As the days have passed I have become very good friends with the "Fail Whale."

I thought weekends would be different, because less people are working and on computers, but boy was I wrong today. Take the England Germany game, twitter was acting like John Terry (not getting the job down). The site kept crashing and when Lamp's goal that was not called a goal happened the site was nowhere to be found.

While people keep complaining about the ball, the real issue with this World Cup has been its affect on twitter.
