A recent setback has come to light as Twitter X, under the leadership of Elon Musk, grapples with a notable technical glitch that led to the disappearance of images and media links predating 2014. The company has acted promptly to rectify the Twitter glitch, assuring users that the bug has been fixed and the full resolution is anticipated within the coming days. However, these occurrences mark a larger pattern of emerging bugs, leaving users increasingly dissatisfied with X’s performance.
Addressing the Twitter Glitch
In a recent update, X Support acknowledged the presence of a critical bug that hindered the display of images preceding 2014. The glitch did not result in any loss of images or data. To alleviate concerns, the company swiftly addressed the issue, implementing the necessary fixes. It is expected that the complete resolution of this inconvenience will be achieved in the near future. Despite this action, details remain scant regarding the root cause of the bug and the reason behind the estimated duration for the resolution process.
The Bug’s Impact
The glitch’s impact extended to a multitude of tweets, including iconic ones that have become synonymous with specific moments in time. One such instance is the 2014 Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres’ famous tweet featuring a selfie with Hollywood luminaries like Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, and Meryl Streep. The humorous caption, “If only Bradley’s arm was longer. Best photo ever,” accompanied the viral image. It’s intriguing to note that the glitch seems to have specifically affected posts preceding December 2014, leaving later tweets unaffected. Speculation has arisen, linking the bug to potential domain changes, as the company transitions from Twitter.com to X.com.
