Tweets have been circulating saying that you can trigger a cool new Twitter feature – colored tweets in a sort-of rainbow theme – simply by changing your birthday to 2007.
Easter eggs have a bit of a cult following with programmers and technical users – Microsoft Excel famously included hidden games until the company’s Trustworthy Computing initiative rightfully banned the practice as being a likely source of risky bugs from improperly tested code.
In this case, the “Twitter 2007 multicolor” hoax is actually a cruel way to get you locked out of your Twitter account. Anyone born in 2007 is currently at most 12 years old, and therefore couldn’t possibly be 13, which is Twitter’s minimum age.
