When I clear this tweet away, watch the bottom info window - where it says "Brisbane". There's a flash of something else instead of "Brisbane" here as the notification clears. I think it says "June". I've not been able to check frame by frame of this video though.
I can reproduce this glitch every time I clear something, and it is beginning to make me twitch a little...
Especially I won't mention the screens that require you to scroll down for a random while, and then use the fast-forward button to go to the next page. Nor the odd way it opens in a small window which you then need to open in full-screen. Or that I simply cannot understand how search works.
The actual article page has used the correct font and looks perfect: it is just the front page that suffers from this bug.
Also confusing: "Also include news about" - what do you mean? Does 'Technology' not contain news about the internet? Or do you mean "Include more news about"...?
There's no doubt that there is a community here of sorts, just as there are the same old faces at your local bar. There's no doubt that some of it is vibrant - communities around Google products certainly are, though Google haven't bothered making G+ the "official" way to give feedback for any of their products preferring instead to keep Google Groups going.
But there's also no doubt that most people didn't understand what G+ is here for, and have long since left. Discussion is smaller every day. Google have seemingly placed G+ in maintenance mode already: product updates are mostly about stripping products out (Hangouts, Photos). G+ integration is being stripped out of the rest of Google; with direct links from most products now removed. Official-looking communities are full of spam. G+ doesn't get a single mention in I/O.
So, yes, happy birthday Google+. Four is quite something. But five? I doubt it.
