New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on March 08, 2022) follows:

In the last two decades, the use of social media networks has seen tremendous growth.

Having said that, Twitter is undoubtedly one of the most popular platforms where users can share their opinions with others via short messages called Tweets. These messages can have a maximum length of 280 characters.

With more than 206 million monetizable monthly users as of 2021, it is one of the leading social networks worldwide.

Nonetheless, Twitter users are no strangers when it comes to bugs with users complaining about the auto-refreshing timeline making a comeback and translate tweet function not working for some.

But recent reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) from Twitter users suggest that comments or replies are not loading for many. The problem is preventing them from viewing any threads.

It is a really serious issue since users are unable to interact with others. A bunch of people said they tried changing networks, clearing app data and cache but these generic solutions do not seem to be working.

Below are some reports from Twitter users complaining about replies or comments not loading.

twitter isn’t showing me any replies to any tweets (not just my own – like any tweets lol) and tbh it’s kinda freeing bc it’s cut down ship discourse on the tl by a good 50%

Unfortunately, Twitter is yet to comment on the matter where comments or replies are not loading for many. We hope the developers look into the issue and fix it as soon as possible.

A possible reason why comments and replies were not loading might be related to the recent user-reported Twitter outage on Downdetector. In case you did not know, it is a real-time problem and outage monitoring service that lets you know about their status.
