Twitter has taken its much popular app Tweetdeck offline after there were reports of some users gaining access to other users account. In an official statement the company said, “TweetDeck is currently down while we look into an issue. Apologies for the inconvenience”.
Although the company did not saying anything much, the engineers are working to correct the bug which enabled some users to access accounts of other users without any permission.
Geoff Evason was shocked when he logged into his Twitter account via Tweetdeck and found that he was somehow able to access hundreds of other accounts. After he reported the incidence, the company acted abruptly and took down the Web version of TweetDeck.
Tweetdeck was acquired by Twitter in May 2011 and has been available for the users of Twitter as a web as well as desktop client. This is not a first case of bug engulfing the rapidly growing social network. Recently, there was a software flaw that had surfaced where some users were not able to see people that they were following. In 2010, many users were witness to the irritating “Fail Whale” as the company was working to strengthen its infrastructure and roll out new features.
