Mobile Web Rises to Challenge Following Jackson’s Death
The death of Michael Jackson nearly stalled the world wide web.
Unlike anything seen in recent memory, entertainment and social networking websites experienced near crashes and exploding servers as a result of millions of hits that congested web traffic to an unprecedented extent.
The mobile web in particular was tested like never before and came through shining on the other side.
Even before Michael Jackson’s death was confirmed, celebrities took to Twitter to comment on a day of celebrity death (first Farrah Fawcett, then Michael Jackson). Throughout the evening, other celebrities tweeted to similarly express their reactions to the King of Pop’s death at the age of 50.
