Tweets about YouTube videos should now be fixed

Postby teh_leet_haxor » Mon Mar 25, 2013 7:46 am

This has been one hell of a weekend for the more obscure bugs to start all surfacing at the same time. About one hour ago, the site decided to spam a ton of tweets about videos from Sinvicta's channel, which I've now removed and (hopefully!) corrected the cause.

As far as I can determine, the only way it could have happened is, while checking YouTube's feeds for new videos, the site received a valid response containing a valid but empty RSS feed. After that, receiving a normal response caused it to identify the entire set of videos as being new.

Apologies for that bug; I've now added some stricter conditions for testing if a video is new.

I wonder how many people saw all of those Tweets and thought that I was purposefully spamming them for views. :?

I imagine only a few Europeans would have noticed at least :)
