Twitter is the latest social media site that allows users to try to post burn after reading content. Tweets, as twitter calls them, allow its mobile users to post short "stories" such as photos or videos superimposed with text and set to disappear after 24 hours.However, a bug means that the content of flies has not been deleted correctly and can still be accessed for a long time after 24 hours. The details of the bug have been published in a series of tweets.
This is because the bug effectively allows anyone to access and download the user's flies without triggering the notification that the user has been read and who has read it. In this way, the flies will not be deleted at any point, and the bug can be abused, so that the user's fleets can be archived after the expiration date.
One application is designed to interact with Twitter backend systems through its developer API. A list of Fleets from the server is returned. Each Fleets has its own direct URL, which is opened in the browser and loaded Fleets. in the form of pictures or videos Yet even after 24 hours, the server returns Fleets links that have disappeared from Twitter applications. A spokesman for the Twitter confirmed the problem and said a restoration plan was on the way.
