Twitter’s journey as a liaison for humanity throughout the world is not as easy as it seems. This popular service in Indonesia several times has experienced over capacity.
Even though globally there has been a decline in active users over the past several quarters, Statista data revealed that Indonesian Twitter users continue to increase every year, and this year has even touched a number of up to 22.8 million people.
With the growing number of users, of course, it will affect the work system of the service. The more data that must be managed, the more burden the system must bear.
As a result, the service which is famous for producing 140 characters (although it has now become 280 characters ), several times has even experienced over capacity or excess capacity, which has caused its services to be down.
What Causes Twitter Over Capacity?
Apart from increasing the workload experienced by the system, there are many other things that can cause Twitter to experience over capacity. As with other internet-based services, Twitter also has to face problems such as privacy, intimidation cases, and vulnerabilities due to bot-bots that spread false news.
Not infrequently, this service must deal with attacks from cybercriminals and other hacking cases. In a case, the service must also provide an update to the system.
Some of these things can usually cause Twitter to over capacity. Which is more clearly, for each event, can be checked through the information submitted by Twitter in the Blog or the official social media page.
Characteristics of Twitter Experiencing Over Capacity
Although each event has its own signs, overcapacity on Twitter, in general, can be characterized by a number of things, such as slow response or failure when making calls, users cannot follow other users, fail to retweet, the application has a very slow response, to the website which is not open.
What to do?
In addition to reporting it to Twitter through user complaint services, what users can do to deal with this problem is to wait for the service developer to fix the problem.
Alternatively, users can copy the curtain that will be uploaded to a text editor application, whether it’s Notepad, Word, or an online-based service while waiting for Twitter to fix it.
