Some people were asking me about a new rule on Twitter. Supposedly if you tweet a verified account, they can't see it unless the person follows you.
I laughed inside, knowing that with no official announcement for Twitter, it was some idiot trolling or pulling a fast one.
So some dumb bitch got massive attention because they spent their time asking people to retweet something that was not true. How could you ever assume a new policy by Twitter because there was possibly a bug?
Or maybe it was just someone upset that a celebrity wasn't following them, and didn't reply their tweet.
To cut a long story short - are people really that stupid to NOT look for the source of stories like that and wonder why there's no OFFICIAL word?
Sheesh. Come on people. It's 2013. Get with the program!
...or perhaps you believe in the tooth fairy too.
We're hearing that some users may be experiencing issues viewing their @replies and mentions. Our engineers are looking into it!
This issue affecting @replies and mentions has now been resolved. Thanks for your patience!
To clarify: A bug caused mobile users to see mentions only from accounts they follow. It's now been fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.
