Over the past week or two, there’s been a lot more of this:

In fact, many people are reporting seeing the dreaded Bart screen every 15 minutes or so (and some Android players have seen it more regularly than that). As the game will often reconnect on tapping Retry, this is simply annoying in most cases. But if the server connection drops in the middle of leaving eggs, it may means that some or all of the eggs you are leaving may not be there when you go back in again.

The appearance of the dreaded Bart screen with this kind of frequency is something that hasn’t been seen by most longer-term players since last year. And if your WiFi or 3G connection is strong, and your device has plenty of memory available, then there’s really nothing more that you can do to avoid seeing it. This is something that EA will need to resolve.
