On Tuesday millions of Twitter user started receiving strange notifications from Twitter. Anyone who received them must have believed that some mysterious thing is happening to their mobile phone or that their phone had got some issue.
The unfathomable push notifications consisted of what looked like nonsensical strings of letters and numbers, with some users suspecting a hack or phishing scam that, well had gone a bit wrong.
This weird thing got even more interested when Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey opened his smartphone and knocked out a few tweets. Replying to one of Twitter’s more peculiar episodes in its 12-year history, Dorsey’s message, which included a screenshot of the strange text, was short and to the point: “We’re seeing this issue too. On it.”
Within a few hours, Twitter’s core team of engineers had apparently found the problem out and resolved the issue in order to get Twitter back to its original state. Well, as much order as you can restore to Twitter.
Twitter Support also tweeted a statement regarding this issue:
“You know those red bubbles that appear when you get notifications? Usually, you wouldn’t see this in numbers and code, but that’s how we talk to your phone so you get those notifications. It’s fixed, we’re good.”
Now, this issue is resolved by Twitter and its working like before.
