Lady Gaga's new album sale slows Amazon to a crawl

Monday, May 23, 2011

On Monday, fans of Lady Gaga swamped Amazon.com for the debut of her latest album.

Amazon put the "Born This Way" album download on sale for 99-cents. That steep discount caused so much demand that the traffic slowed Amazon's servers to a crawl. Some fans weren't even able to download it.

Amazon turned to twitter to thank customers for their patience.
