Twitter bug may result in a lot of new followers for @false

A JS bug in Twitter’s code redirects visitors to user @false.

Here’s how it works:

1) Go to search.twitter.com but make sure you’re logged out of Twitter

2) Enter a search query (example: 42)

42

3) You should land on the ‘Most relevant’ tab. Click on ‘All Tweets’ instead.

4) Now click on ‘Tweets with links’ and see what happens.
