Twitter to fix disappearing tweets issue very soon, Know the details
One of most popular Micro-blogging site Twitter has revealed its plans to fix the bug which makes tweets disappearing from timeline of users. The fix will be effective on the Twitter application that is being used by the many smartphone users for browsing the site.
However, there is no instant relief for the Twitter app users because the fix will be available in a time span of two months, said Twitter.
For those who are unaware of the technical scenario, twitter app users constantly face an issue where the tweets disappear while they a reading them. At times when a user is engrossed in a tweet, the feed refreshes and the tweets disappear from the view. Then the users have to manually search for the specific tweet and read it. The momentary feeling of the disappearing tweet can be very disgusting.
According to The Verge, if you were looking at a tweet on your timeline, and at the same time someone else you follow replied to it, or the original tweeter threaded it, the app would suddenly refresh, while the tweet disappeared from view.
That’s obviously not ideal, so Twitter plans to make changes over the next two months to fix the problem, the report said.
“We want you to be able to stop and read a Tweet without it disappearing from view,” Twitter replied to a user.
The two-month timeline means that a fix won’t be in place immediately, though, so you might still run into the issue before Twitter makes the necessary changes, the report said.
And while it’s not clear exactly what changes Twitter plans to make, the fixes could be welcome for people who have been affected by the disappearing tweets, it added.
The micro-blogging site has recently restarted its account verification process.
Twitter said users who are looking to be verified should keep checking their account settings screen for access to the in-app application.
Since launching the revamped verification programme, Twitter had hit a few snags which forced it to shut down verifications more than once.
The most recent of these pauses were announced on August 13, when the company said it needed to make improvements to both the application and review process.
