Twitter Explains Strange Notification Bug
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey gave an explanation yesterday for the bizarre message alert containing random strings of numbers and letters that some users may have received this week.
Dorsey said that the strange message is code that the platform uses to communicate with the user’s mobile devices. It briefly became visible due to a bug but the Twitter team assured that the issue had already been fixed.
Twitter added that it was a harmless bug and there was no need for concern, since some users may still be on edge due to the news of Facebook’s recent breach.
