Since Elon Musk took control of Twitter, problems on this social network have grown exponentially. These affect several areas and cause many problems for users. A new flaw has been discovered and is bringing tweets that were deleted, against the will of users.
Another weird problem on Twitter
This is yet another strange case in the list of situations that have been reported on Twitter in recent months. The cleaning that Elon Musk did in the teams of this social network meant that the quality of the service offered had declined in a way that was too visible for users.
What now is to be reported by many users and former users is that many of the tweets that were deleted in recent months are coming back. These do not have a defined time window and there are cases of resurfaced publications that are many years old.
Deleted posts are coming back
The problem seems to be widespread, but there is already an apparent pattern for this situation to happen. It seems to mainly affect users who have deleted their tweets in bulk using dedicated tools such as Redact or TweetDelete, although this is not always the case.
Although this situation is completely strange and even abnormal, it seems to already have a probable reason and that is being pointed out. A former Twitter employee revealed on Mastodon that the cause could be a reorganization of servers made by Twitter.
How did tweets return to the social network?
By doing it almost randomly and without the necessary care in the infrastructure, they ended up causing this situation. These ended up being on an equal footing with the rest and so the deleted data was once again synchronized and retrieved for the social network.
In addition to the problem, which Twitter has yet to recognize and resolve, another problem is also clear. The social network is apparently keeping user data even after it is deleted by the user’s will. Here is yet another situation for Elon Musk and his teams to explain and resolve definitively.
