Twitter on Hebrew Translation Fail: It Was a Bug, Not a Feature


Earlier this week, many people noticed that the translate tweet feature for Hebrew was no longer working, meaning non-Hebrew speakers could not conveniently translate tweets from the likes of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other high profile Israelis.

The problem has since been rectified.

But why did the feature stop working? A number of pro-Israel people cried foul, but Twitter have claimed it was a bug.

I am no conspiracy theorist but why do these things always happen to us? You may recall a similar story recently with Spotify , as well as the 2007 Eurovision broadcast.

I guess we are just really unlucky.
