Tweeps On Android Phones Temporarily Logged Out Of Their Twitter Accounts
On Monday, Twitter was working to fix a bug with its system that made the social media jump into 2015 some few days early while logging tweeps using its Android app out of their account. Although the problem has since been fixed, some tweeps on Android phones were still not able to tweet some 18 hours after the problems had been supposedly fixed.
Yesterday morning, Echofon, the makers of Twitter’s popular apps made an apology on their Twitter account to tweeps still struggling to log in their twitter accounts and those still getting the wrong date while on Twitter. This problems is surprisingly not shared by all tweeps using Android phones; rather it appears to be selective.
Android users: we’re sorry for the login/date issues – Twitter’s working on fixing their servers! Here’s an update: http://t.co/RJHqo9bkYE

Tweeps started talking and reporting about the Twitter time warp on Monday when they found themselves logged and locked out of their accounts, while some noticed their tweets were being dated as being 365 days old. Apparently this problem was caused when Twitter’s server for some reason jumped dated to December 2015, and were it not fixed in time, your tweets would be soon dating January 2016.
The issue that prevented some users from signing in to Twitter has been resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience: http://t.co/7BlGvFMC3e

Some tweeps are reporting that they were able to fix this problem on their own by uninstalling the Twitter app, then reboot their phones and reinstall the app again and were able to log in back as normal. This is the only explanation for all the tweets being made by tweeps about Twitter logging them out.
