It seems like a developer from Twitter has pressed a wrong key. Smartphones around the globe were flooded with mysterious Twitter notifications in which the random series of letter and numbers were seen.

The funniest thing is that even the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey witnessed the same problem.

On this Twitter Responded and told that the problem is fied:
You know those red bubbles that appear when you get notifications? Usually, you wouldn’t see this in numbers and code, but that’s how we talk to your phone so you get those notifications. It’s fixed, we’re good. https://t.co/JA71hewEvS

However, I didn’t get what they were actually trying to say!
At this stage, there is nothing to suggest the message was something malicious and appears it may have just been an error.
Moreover, we shouldn’t forget that Twitter is working on many new features to make things easier and simpler for their users. A few weeks back, Twitter announced through a series of tweets that users will soon be able to toggle between a timeline that shows them the latest tweets in chronological order. Recently, we came to know that Twitter has released the latest update for their iOS Users. Twitter For iOS Latest Update packs a number of new features.
