back to article Twitter: WHOOPS we've broken ourselves. Sorr-ee!

Twitter has apologised for "unintentionally" resetting the passwords for a large number of its user accounts. In normal circumstances the social network resets the login details for any account feared to have been hijacked.

    Who cares except for those self important tweeters who bore the rest of the world to death with their inane chatter about nothing.

      So in other words, noone gives a shit except brain dead "celebrities", most of whom are famous for nothing but getting fucked on "leaked" films.

      Paris for obvious reasons.

        Leave Noone out of this!

        Can't you see he's suffered enough?

      There was an article in the NY Times recently about the use of Twitter during crises, with a favorable opinion, after the author and a few million people went through Sandy going through NY/NJ/NE. Seems he rather appreciated knowing what was happening in nearby regions / city blocks. With due nods to the endemic snarkiness before and after the storm, during the storm it was useful to many.

    I got one of these mails saying my account was hacked. Very strangely, there was no sign of malicious activity - except - one of my tweets was deleted. One that linked back to the article published yesterday on El Reg which was highly critical of the Beeb.

    Make of it what you will... I reposted the deleted tweet.

      Re: Hmm.

      Missing tweet has since magically returned from the memory hole. Either an Orwellian first or some other strangeness occuring.
