    Dear all,

    I updated to the latest Jetpack and noticed the following behavior.
    Pages which include Share buttons (Official buttons), in particular Twitter, invokes a download of the torrent file widgets_tweet_button.html.torrent
    with the following content:

    d8:announce42:http://tracker.amazonaws.com:6969/announce13:announce-listll42:http://tracker.amazonaws.com:6969/announceee4:infod6:lengthi66948e4:name25:widgets_tweet_button.html12:piece lengthi262144e6:pieces20:≈˙ä⁄ ,‹aG¢˝E¢éfiÕ12:x-amz-bucket11:tfw-current9:x-amz-key25:widgets/tweet_button.htmlee

    I don't know if this a bug, or a hack of my site, or a hack of twitter somehow.
    Anybody any ideas?

    p.s. behavior is similar for both 3.6 and 3.6.1
    p.p.s. i disabled a twitter share button and so far no problems.

    It's not ours to correct. The issue is with one of Twitter's Amazon Cloud servers serving up a torrent file rather than the correct asset.
