Twitter Bug Makes You Love Celebrities Whether You Want To Or Not

Go to Amanda Bynes' Twitter page and scroll down. Notice anything strange?

Posted on

BuzzFeed's Kate Aurthur noticed something odd when she was looking at Amanda Bynes' Twitter page (like you do.)

That appears to be a tweet from Kate that Amanda Bynes retweeted, but Kate never wrote it. I decided to check out Amanda's feed for myself, and that's when things got even weirder.

But wait, there's more.

I checked @chrisbrown and did not see these retweets.

Many other users have reported seeing the same messages they never wrote on these celebrities' Twitter pages, but not everyone appears to be affected.

We reached out to Twitter and have not heard back.

UPDATE:

The retweets are no longer showing up on these pages.

UPDATE #2:

Here's Twitter's statement.

Louis Peitzman is a deputy entertainment editor for BuzzFeed News and is based in New York.
