Bad Tweets?

One of my blog readers told me that my Twitter feed on the right side of the page is wrong and it's showing someone else's kind of vulgar tweets. Is anyone else seeing tweets that clearly aren't mine? I never put bad language in mine (even if I'm thinking it!), and they are generally PG rated. So, if you see something weird in the Twitter feed section that is clearly not mine let me know. I'm trying to get to the bottom of it. Here at work, I see my true Twitter feed, but I've gotten a report that others see something else. Hmm.

Update: Thanks to another blog reader, we figured it out. Apparently there is a user on Twitter with the username "undefined" so there is some kind of bug on blogger right now that goes to "undefined" sometimes and it's bringing up this guy's Twitter feed instead of mine. Kind of funny though - but who chooses 'undefined' as a username?

I don't even know how to tweet. I'm pathetic.
I'll be on the lookout for vulgar ones though.
Sounds interesting. ;-)

Yep, I see some non-PG ones. Here's a screenshot of what I see: Link

... and I refreshed your page and it's your twitters now. It looks like somehow you're getting this guy's feed:

http://twitter.com/undefined

Weird.

Also, if it's any consolation, it appears that you're not the only one (according to his twitters). Because of his user name (undefined), when a blog's code gets an error of "undefined", the tweets default to his...

Yep, that's it exactly - username = undefined! That's funny, actually. I'm sure lots of people see his Tweets! I never actually saw these "bad" ones so I never was able to get to the bottom of it. Thanks, J!

Glad to help! (I'm not OCD much.) hehe

So it's fixed now? Or is it intermittent?? Sorry I'm late to the party! I don't see any on mine that I didn't write. What a PITA. I heard 2 people complaining about this today but was too lazy to investigate.
