Twitter showing same tweets in feed for hours even after refreshing, issue being looked into

As of January 2022, Twitter is the 15th most popular social media network on the planet in terms of monthly active users.

With somewhere close to 400 million users, Twitter recently generated more than $3.2 million in advertising revenue.

However, in the last few weeks, users have been complaining about issues such as videos freezing but audio keeps playing and some unable to disable the Terms of Service pop-up.

While Twitter seems to be working on the aforementioned problems, users are now saying that they see the same tweets in their feed for hours even after refreshing (1,2,3,4,5).

Many say it is really annoying to deal with since it is preventing them from getting any kind of updates.

Those affected have tried deleting cookies, clearing browser and app cache, reinstalling the app, and even switching to a different browser but nothing seems to help.

Here are some reports from Twitter users who are seeing the same tweets even after refreshing the feed.

Does anyone know why I see the same 12 Tweets all day? @TwitterSupport that’s one way for me to get bored & stop opening this app. I don’t normally see the same 10 Tweets all day. I do not like 🤨

I wish Twitter wouldn’t keep showing me the same 5 or 6 tweets over and over and over and over again. I already interacted with most of the ones they are showing me. Other people tweeted, let me see those. @Twitter @TwitterSupport
