Mysterious Random SMS Tweets: Still Mysterious!

By  |  Wednesday, December 9, 2009 at 4:32 pm

Earlier today I blogged about widespread instances of folks getting random tweets delivered to them by SMS for no apparent reason. TechCrunch’s MG Siegler has written about the same issue, and notes that Twitter has acknowledged the problem. But it looks like Twitter hasn’t yet completely diagnosed the problem–it’s asking for people to post information on the mystery tweets they see, (As of a couple of hours ago, I was still getting them.)

Both MG and Twitter’s items indicate that some people are seeing the tweets online as well as via SMS, and MG says that some of the tweets are from users who have protected their accounts so their items are (theoretically) private. Oops!
