Twitter has suspended its new retweet function.
Now, this takes me back. When I started writing about technology this stuff was commonplace. A software company would announce a new version or a new package, its target date would come and go and then it would be released as buggy as anything. Windows itself didn't get it right until version 3.1 (3.0 caught the imagination of the market, 3.1 worked a load better).
The fact that this doesn't happen any more is to be applauded = except here we are with Twitter issuing a new tweak and unissuing it within days. We'll gloss over the fact that you could already retweet manually.
Half of me hopes this isn't going to mark a return to the bad old days - for 'software company' read 'social media company' but the idea of premature releases remains constant. The other half of me is rubbing its hands saying 'here we go again, software people back on form...'
I'll keep you posted.
