I can't count the number of times that's popped up on twitter. It seems to clear after a short while, most of the time.

Twitter is "over capacity"

If you receive such kind of message it is likely means that their servers are being bogged down by a high volume of Tweets.I think the main reason of this is that twitter allows flooding of tweets where a particular user can tweet as many as he can to promote their business site as part of their social media marketing campaign.
