I was cleaning up my nightstand this afternoon and tweeted this from my phone:
Kinda dull, but whatever. Thing is, when I checked Tweetbot a while later, that tweet was nowhere to be found. It wasn’t in my home timeline, it wasn’t in the list of my tweets, it wasn’t anywhere. But…
But when Charles Turner (@vze26m98) replied to it, I could see it through the link in his reply. Here’s my Profile on the Twitter website.
By revealing the conversation with Charles in the right column, I can get to my original tweet there at the top. But it’s not in the left column, where it also belongs.
I’m not sure what to call this. Is it a zombie tweet, dead but still walking the earth? Or is it in Twitter limbo, unbaptized but still innocent? I don’t know whether to ask a programmer, a witch doctor, or a theologian.
