I found this interesting. My Twitterrific application on my iPhone was affected by Twitpocalypse. They just update the application with version 2.0.2 to resolve the problem. Over 2 billion tweets … WOW.
The Twitpocalypse is similar to the Y2K bug. The unique identifier associated to each tweet has now exceeded 2,147,483,6471
For some of your favorite third-party Twitter services not designed to handle such a case, the sequence will suddenly turn into negative numbers. At this point, they are very likely to malfunction or crash.
