Some Twitter accounts have been affected with a strange bug that resulted in tweets on their feed, claiming people they follow liked those tweets while in reality, a scan of their profile did not list those liked tweets.

Some of these algorithmically-inserted tweets had been quoted in posts that those claimed friends had actually liked or liked tweet replies, indicating a problem with the service, Engadget reported.

If you intend to rid yourself of the strange chronological timeline, you can use a search filter available on realtwitter.com that will help remove all retweets, replies, media, links, and people you don't follow.
