After launching a new search feature yesterday, and rolling out a new interests-based homepage today, Twitter has been acting mightly strange for the past hour or so, with people reporting seeing random chunks of other user’s tweets in their timelines, including retweets while using the Twitter web client and browsing. Twitter is aware of the problem and tells me it’s not a security issue — and that it’s working on getting it resolved.
The solution apparently involves disabling #NewTwitter, which has lead to retro jokes galore on where else, Twitter. As of yet there’s no word on when it’ll bring the redesigned site back.
Maybe the should revert their name back to twttr while they’re at it? See what I did just there …
Update: And #NewTwitter is back, from the looks of it.
Created in 2006, Twitter is a global real-time communications platform with 400 million monthly visitors to twitter.com, more than 200 million monthly active users around the world. We see a billion tweets every 2.5 days on every conceivable topic. World leaders, major athletes, star performers, news organizations and entertainment outlets are among the millions of active Twitter accounts through which users can truly get the pulse of the planet.
