It seems Twitter is full of bugs, and the exterminator won’t be stopping by any time soon. The writing was on the wall. After massive rolling layoffs in November and December, Twitter’s staff is dwindling. The company closed its Seattle office late last year, but not before things got so bad that employees started bringing their own toilet paper to work. Earlier this week, Twitter employees were evicted from their Singapore office due to unpaid rent.

The absence of those workers is now felt while using the site: features are visibly on the fritz, repeatedly glitching and bugging out. Users are making note of the issues, but Twitter doesn’t seem to be paying attention. Instead of fixing them, they’ve been messing with features like image display and view counts — things that don’t need changing in the first place. The lights at Twitter may be on, but is anyone actually home?

Here’s a rundown of what users say need fixing right now:
