Missing Replies On Twitter? Can’t See Retweets And Shares? Use Twitter Search To Find Them All

Here’s something you may have suspected but didn’t know for sure: Twitter’s mentions folder is unreliable.

It seems like half the time over the last few days it takes me 2-3 attempts to even post a tweet. And missing replies… what’s that all about?

Come on guys… now we’re in the latter stages and the matches are fairly thin on the ground, you can’t use the World Cup as an excuse anymore. Hire some more people. Hire better people. Just do something about it. It’s getting embarrassing.
