fail-whale1Twitter has suspended its Lists feature temporarily after the site experienced a flood of errors. $155 million in venture capital later, and the site still goes down? C’mon people!

The company posted this message this afternoon:

“Starting about 10 minutes ago, we began experiencing a very high rate of errors and we are working on the underlying problem.

Update (1:30p): We are now recovering from this unexpected downtime. The Lists feature is temporarily unavailable as we diagnose the cause of the outage.”

Lists are a feature that Twitter rolled out this fall. You can create groups of users to follow and share them with others. It’s largely a discovery feature that helps newbies and experienced users find others to follow.
