If iMessage has cut off both ends of your tweets, you’re not alone

Published on

On Thursday, I wrote that Twitter was having a rough February after experiencing issues for the second time in a week, and on Friday, the company was dealing with a strange iMessage bug. If you were on an Apple device and sent a tweet to your buddy on an Apple device, the first and last characters in the tweet would not appear. As reported by 9to5MacTweet samples sent via iMessage seemed to miss the first and last characters of the tweet, causing them to be read strangely.

myself and someone else roadside writer also encountered this bug. Here’s how Apple’s Messages app on my iPhone, Mac, and Apple Watch displayed a tweet I wrote yesterday:

And here’s what the tweet I made yesterday actually looked like:

When Twitter spokesperson Stephanie Cortez was reached for comment, he originally said the bug appeared to be fixed, but it turns out it hasn’t — Cortez said shortly after we first published this article that the company was aware was of the problem and it is investigating a solution. When I checked late Friday night, the bug was fixed for me on all my devices. Apple did not respond to a request for comment.

Update February 18, 10:15 PM ET: The bug has been fixed for me on my devices.
