Bollywood’s Twitter-happy stars woke up to a shocker on Tuesday morning. A technical error in the website saw peoples’ tweets being repeatedly posted or auto-deleted.
Actor Abhishek Bachchan’s tweet, “With team Raavan at the airport about to board a flight to London. Always feels good to be around Mani and all. England here we come!” was posted to his 2,55,265 followers, 10 times. The glitch led to a flurry of reactions from Abhishek’s friends. Shabana Azmi wrote, “your tweets r being repeated 10 times. Check what’s wrong.”
Author Chetan Bhagat joked, “Clearly @juniorbachchan and co have hijacked twitter, each tweet coming 10 times. Ok ok, we’ll watch 10 headed Raavan!” Actress Mallika Sherawat rued, “Looks like my 800 or so tweets have all been erased!”
Actor Amitabh Bachchan asked Twitter bosses to fix the problem. “Twitter Management! Something wrong with your server! Rectify ASAP.” Asking users not to panic, the company spokeswoman Carolyn Penner stated, “Our infrastructure and operations engineers are working to resolve this.”
