What does it mean when it says something like "499 Throttled"?

@frauenfelder That's a high load on the server. Probably all the BB readers!

@frauenfelder I'm assuming it's the specific instance of Mastodon you're on bogging down from load.

@frauenfelder It's probably the JS returning the raw HTTP error. 499 is not assigned, web server is probably getting more traffic than it can handle and throttling user requests.
