Heavy Hitting Twitter Traffic

Every now and again, people discover a post I wrote back in 2006 that discusses the Fedex logo, and presents an interview with its designer, Lindon Leader of Leader Creative.

A Twitter user tweeted the Fedex article, and before I knew what was happening, a flock of followers were hammering my server. I had to install a WordPress plugin called WP Super Cache, that presents viewers with a frozen static HTML page instead of the normal version that WordPress generates for each visitor. That spike would have been four times higher had I not acted.

Meanwhile, there’s a steady but calmer stream of fascinating comments being posted on older articles. Many of the comments are from people descended from the artists featured in Articles & Texticles, as well as owners, past and present, of pictures shown here.

Have a peek at articles about William Orpen, and Ivan Choultsé for starters.
