Some users have reported that tweets affected by this bug are successfully showing up when the users’ locations change, or seem to change. Twitter use posted a video showing that when they used a VPN to make it seem like their usually U.S.-based account was connecting from Seoul, South Korea, one of the tweets that was previously showing up as deleted had started to reappear on the platform.
Twitter has seen increased latency
As Platformer previously last month, “Twitter has seen increased latency — the time between taking an action like refreshing the timeline and seeing new tweets populate in your feed” since it shut down one of its data centers as part of owner Elon Musk’s cost-cutting initiatives.
Some users have reported seeing their engagement numbers – such as likes and retweets – constantly change in a matter of seconds due to this delay. It appears that tweets disappearing depending on a users’ region could possibly be related to such issues.
In Mashable’s own tests, quote tweet count details have been breaking too. Normally, when clicking on quote tweet counts we expect to see a list of tweets that quoted the tweet in question.
Presently, even when the number of quote tweets indicated on a tweet is in the hundreds or thousands, the quote tweet page will often just appear empty as if no one had quoted the tweet.
