I’ve been having a slight issue lately with Twitter web. It’s basically as follows.
…instead of showing you my recent tweets. It’s not because I’m mega popular (or unpopular), because it does it with every one I try to look at. I’ve tried a number of different twitter.com/users – both normal folk and mega popular celebrities. Same problem remains.
And yet, despite loading taking a while (so long it gives up) because the site is over capacity, if I log in to Twitter web, and load the page again, then it goes from this:
Miraculously fixed in an instant. Is this a deliberate annoyance to make you log in? This is annoying to me because I don’t use Twitter web. So every now and then, when I’m reading Twitter from inside Echofon or another Twitter client, and some idiot puts in a link to a full Twitter profile instead of just writing @username, OR I’m searching in Google and it throws up a Twitter profile page in the results – I get this stupid error until I log in again.
Is it just me experiencing this? Well it isn’t, because I found a few pages like this: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/3569 – but only people saying to contact support, not any mention of whether or not support fixed it (can find no mention of this problem in the help pages).
