Twitter gehackt oder alles zurück auf Null?

von Axel Porsch | Gegen 19:00 war alles still. Keiner folgte Janosch auf #unfAirBerlin, Janosch folgte niemandem. Alles still. Nur zig Tweets im Netz, die einsam auf irgendeiner einer Seite stehen. Allein und verlassen. Siehste, so ungefähr fühlt sich eine Währungsreform an. Alle fangen wieder bei Null an.

Twitter hit by major disruption

Most users currently show 0 users. Twitter has been hit by a major bug that has seen many users of the service lose all of their followers and friends.

The problem began when a flaw was uncovered that allowed people to force others to „follow“ them on the site. People who typed „accept“ followed by a person’s username forced the user to be added to their list of followers.

The hack was quickly passed around the social network with many people using it to force celebrities to follow them.

Twitter has fixed the bug but said they it was currently cleaning up the damage.

„We identified and resolved a bug that permitted a user to ‚force‘ other users to follow them,” the site said in a blog post. „We’re now working to rollback all abuse of the bug that took place.”

As part of the clean up, Twitter has temporarily reset accounts so that people look like they are following no one and have no followers.

„Follower/following numbers are currently at 0; we’re aware and this too should shortly be resolved.“

People can still use the service in the meantime…

Und plötzlich waren Sie alle wieder da, all die lieben Follower. Ob inzwischen auch die selbsternannten Web-Evangelisten, die nach diesem Schock einen Nervenzusammenbruch erlitten, aus der Intensivstation entlassen werden konnten, ist bisher nicht bekannt. Aber vielleicht hatten sie den Twitter Follower-Exodus vor lauter Parallel-Twitterei mit zwei Mobilgeräten auch garnicht mitbekommen.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
