Selective Twitter App Goes Crazy, Posts Thousands Of False Updates

Selective Twitter, one of the leading applications which enables Twitter users to post selected updates to Facebook, went crazy over 30 minutes ago posting the statement “Sitting at the doctor’s office..not a fun day” to thousands of users’ statuses. While the developer behind the application will most likely resolve the issue, it wasn’t fixed before thousands of people posted the update in a matter of minutes.

A quick search for the phrase turns up tons of results. While we’re not quite sure how many people were affected by this glitch, it’s pretty clear that numerous people have been impacted as illustrated in the image below.

We’ll be sure to post an update if we receive any more information, however it’s definitely an annoyance for the more than 100,000 monthly active users of Selective Twitter.

Thanks to Mari Smith for the tip.
