The bug apparently primarily affects iOS 15 users, and Twitter has confirmed that it is investigating.
In an update shared today, Twitter’s Support team confirmed that it is investigating this issue:
We’re looking into a bug that’s causing unexpected logouts on iOS 15. Sorry for the inconvenience and we’ll keep you updated on the fix.
The replies to today’s tweet from Twitter Support (embedded below) show that the bug is impacting a fair number of users, many of which who say they have been logged on “several” times or more.
More details about the extent of this bug are unclear, but it seemingly affects people using the Twitter for iOS application while running iOS 15. Users say they are being logged out of their accounts multiple times per day without explanation.
