Twitter’s new interim tweets or “navies” have been hit by a bug that will allow them to be accessed within a week of the feature launching, after a 24-hour expiration date.
Short stories with photos or videos with text written by Navy. Like the stories on Instagram or Facebook, the Navy is at the top of the Twitter timeline.
According to Tech Crunch. Details of the error were posted in a series of tweets over the weekend. Twitter soon acknowledged the issue and says a solution will come.
“After 24 hours we know of a bug that can be accessed by a technical package that can access some Fleet Media URLs,” a Twitter spokesman told TechCrunch.
Package refers to a developer application that may clear navies from public accounts through Twitter’s API. However, once Twitter’s fix is applied, URLs for navies will not work even if they are active or out of date.
Twitter says it will not remove the Navy from its servers for up to 30 days, and that it may keep the Navy for a long time if its rules are violated.
