Meet Yiying Lu, the designer who created the worldwide phenomenon that is Twitter's "Fail Whale" - the cute picture of a whale being carried by a flock of birds that appears on screen every time the site crashes. In little over a year it has become a worldwide sensation among Twitter users - or Twitterati - who famously include Barack Obama, Ashton Kutcher, Britney Spears, and Deirdre Sullivan (ummmm, that is me). The design is now featured on everything from T-shirts to posters to key rings, tattoos, and cocktails. Yiying has revealed she has made only a modest amount of money from the iconic design. Come on Twitter, give the girl a few extra bucks!
