People in India and across the globe have complained of their likes and retweet count fluctuating on Twitter. A technical glitch on the site saw many people experiencing issues with likes and retweets on their tweets. Twitter confirmed the issue saying it is working on fixing the problem and made an apology for causing unintended inconvenience.The frequent and arbitrary fluctuations, however, triggered speculations about whether it was Twitter’s attempt to crackdown on fake accounts on its platform or if it was just an attempt to censor content being posted.
WHAT'S GOING ON WITH @Twitter?!. For my last several posts, posted a few hours ago, the number of retweets and likes suddenly declined, dropping hundreds of retweets and likes.
ARE YOU EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEM?— Larry Elder (@larryelder) February 12, 2019
Something not right with @Twitter @TwitterIndia
Suddenly retweet counts on every tweet going down. I just noticed on @SriSri account. Compare the screenshot below.— Kamlesh Barwal (@KamleshBarwal) February 12, 2019
So this is the most bizarre thing to happen to me on Twitter. I did a tweet. It got retweeted. My mentions say so, but suddenly all the RTs and likes have disappeared.
This is really weird right? The whole thread. It's still in my TL but shows no RTs or likes. Just empty. pic.twitter.com/RSaoWNj82D— ♿️ G Peters (@mssinenomine) February 12, 2019
So here’s what @twitter can do in a day’s work to one RW tweet. Reduce 1200+ RTs to 500. Then again bring-down 1000+ RTs to 700+.
No wonder @jack has been summoned by Parliamentary Committee. This is fraud and calls for serious investigation!February 12, 2019
In a message on its handle, Twitter said:
Some people around the world are experiencing an issue with notifications, Likes, and Retweets. We’re working on resolving this and will follow up soon. We apologize for the inconvenience.

According to reports, earlier in February, a Twitter bug, mainly affecting Android users, began popping up retweets from random users on people’s timeline.
The company later confirmed that the bug had mislabelled the "social proof" tag on retweets, which is why users could view posts from people they did not follow, TechCrunch reported.Some Twitter users also complained that they could not view tweets mentioning them.
Is @Twitter messed up for anyone else? My "mentions" tab is empty but when I go to "All" or click on my tweets I can see the replies. And also it looks like likes and retweets just disappear. My previous tweet went from 1k retweets and 10k likes to 100 retweets and 1k likes.
