      I think it's a great graphic. I can see some of the critiques, and some of the frustration due to the technical issues lately...but...the graphic is pristine, fresh, and intriguing.

      Who was the designer?

      @ravidor maybe those are the questions we should ask Yiying Lu. :D

      On the other hand, if Twitter was running on MySQL, shouldn't they have designed something with Sakila the Dolphin in it?

      I understood the meaning of this. I study hypnosis, and this image is supposed to hypnotize you by being totally meaningless.
