Some Twitter users have been experiencing some abnormalities on their various account, and while the majority of the people thinks its a deliberate effort from the platform’s conservative team, Twitter attested that it is as a result of an unknown bug
If you are one of the many people that notice abnormal activities on their accounts, then this new is meant for you. For some days now, there has been a various complaint about likes reduction and MSM, and it seems like the error is rather on the increment than decreasing. Some users even believed that it is Twitters attempt to totally eradicate the like feature. Sadly, as it’s often the case, the reality is usually far more boring than we want it to be. Twitter’s official support account announced that there are issues with users all over the world and is working to fix them as soon as possible
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.

Apparently, the problem is already affecting other features on the platform including, Likes, Retweets and notifications. The abnormal behavior of Twitter isn’t affecting everyone but there’s no information about exactly what is triggering the disappearance of Likes in certain profiles. Hopefully, the issues will be resolved soon and people will get back to arguing about their usual topics.
