During President Trump’s first State of the Union address, so many users used fact-checking site PolitiFact that it crashed the website, but for only six minutes.
“Welp … our website just crashed. Thanks for reading ?!!? We’ll keep things up here on Twitter while we see what happened,” the website tweeted, citing high web traffic numbers.
On the run-up to Tuesday night’s speech, PolitiFact had labeled 69% of Trump’s public remarks as ranging from “Mostly False” to “Pants on Fire” wrong.
