Twitter has been reliable lately. A little *too* reliable. The Fail Whale doesn't come around much anymore. You can blame the team at Pivotal Labs for that.
I thought that some of the Internet might be sad about Whale not visitng anymore. So, I made a Firefox Extension to help bring him back.
Basically, when you visit pages on twitter.com, every once in a while, the Whale will pop up. It's quick and easy to get rid of, just click the Whale or the mesage in the status bar. If you want to force the Whale to display at any time, click the message in the status bar.
