Army of Eggs! Twitter Users Can't Upload Profile Pics
What is an army of eggs?
Yesterday afternoon Twitter posted that their profile image upload function was temporarily unavailable.
They posted an update this morning stating that their engineers were working on the issue and expect to have it resolved later today.
This is a relatively small glitch in the Twitter machine. For most Twitter users this will not be an issue. However for people creating new accounts, this is already causing confusion and frustration.
On Yahoo Questions people were asking about not being able to add or change their profile image. Many were blaming the "new" Twitter for the problem, stating they hated the "new" Twitter.
This small glitch is creating a small army of new profiles with only Eggs for their profile image. Many of the new accounts experiencing this issue may not realize that this is simply a glitch and they will be able to change their profile image soon. How many people will end up keeping their Egg profile pic because they don't realize they can change it?
This is a problem for networking and engagement. Many people will not follow an egg because they think that it is spam or a bot and many are not interested in talking to eggs for the same reason.
In March Twitter said that they had an average of 460,000 new accounts created daily. So that is nearly half a million eggs. Maybe the small glitch is not so small.
