'Disappearing' tweets mystery solved
Melbourne, May 25 (ANI): The mystery of a word getting disappeared from 'tweets' all over the world has been solved and it seems that MS-DOS is the culprit.
Whenever you type 'get lost', 'get better' or 'get bent' on twitter, the text will immediately disappear as soon as you hit 'Tweet'.
This has been happening because the word 'get' still acts as a command from the pre-Windows world of MS-DOS - where programmers type words such as 'copy' or "delete" to perform functions, News.com.au reported.
Now, in the case of Twitter, typing 'get' acts as a command to retrieve the last tweet from a certain user.
However the question that arises is why doesn't Twitter just fix the problem.
'BuzzFeed' revealed that the commands are handy to people who tweet via text message.
"A majority of these commands aren't things you'd otherwise use in a two-word tweet, and most only work through the SMS service - you can tweet "suggest something" just fine from a computer or app, for example," said 'BuzzFeed' staffer, John Hermann. (ANI)
