Twitter buttons overwriting images for some IE8 users

Hi again. We’ve been looking at a bug where some users were having images overwritten by Twitter buttons.

We’re not sure why this is, yet, but have contacted Twitter to see if they can help at all. This is very reminiscent of a bug introduced by changes to the Twitter javascript API that happened last year, which was fixed by Twitter updating their javascript.

In the meantime, we’ve disabled the share on twitter button for items that was the cause of the problem.

As soon as we can fix it, we’ll do that and let you know, but in the meantime we hope not having the Twitter button won’t be too great an inconvenience, and we offer our apologies to those users who have been affected by this issue.
