According to a TechCrunch report, users have been complaining about fluctuating likes and retweets for a while now.
In its response, Twitter did not say when the problem began or when it intended to fix it.
This is the latest bug or anomaly to affect the platform. Last month, a bug was detected that affected tweets and accounts of users on its Android platform after it had run unchecked for 5 years.
The android bug was fixed before an announcement was made.
This is the latest in a call for improvement and fixing of Twitter’s features; the long drawn out debate and call for an edit button still rages on.
On Tuesday, Kara Swish, a technology journalist with the New York Times and Recode, interviewed Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a live chat on the platform.
And according to a report in WIRED, typographical errors in the conversation are a good case for why Twitter needs an edit button.
