Jos Buttler set the T20 World Cup alight with his maiden T20I century helping England register their fourth successive win in the tournament. The Englishman produced a batting masterclass in Sharjah, smashing an unbeaten 101 off just 67 balls against Sri Lanka on Monday. Buttler reached the landmark with a six off the last ball against Dushmantha Chameera. England went on to win the match by 26 runs, and now are all but assured of a place in the semi-finals. England’s star all-rounder Ben Stokes, who is not part of the team for the T20 World Cup, took to Twitter to salute his teammate.

While many fans tweeted in agreement with Stokes, others weren’t as convinced.

Buttler leads the run-scoring charts in this year’s tournament with 214 runs to his name, ahead of Sri Lanka’s Pathum Nissanka, who has scored a total of 170 runs.
The Englishman was in rampaging form against Australia, smashing 71 off 32 balls as England made mince meat of their arch-rivals last week.
And while the England opener was not as destructive against Sri Lanka, his knock was more significant than the one against the Aussies.
Put into bat, England were reeling at 35 for three. Buttler and captain Eoin Morgan added 112 runs for the fourth wicket to bail England out.
Buttler started slowly but in the second half of his innings, he stepped on the accelerator and smashed the Sri Lankan bowlers to all parts of Sharjah.
England sit pretty at the top of the Group 1 points table with eight points from four games.

Twitter likely to roll out ‘Reactions’ feature soon
After unveiling several features this year, micro-blogging site Twitter is reportedly readying new features, including Reactions, Downvotes and Sorted Replies for iOS users.
According to reverse engineer Nima Owji, the Reactions feature, which started being tested a couple of months ago, is set to launch soon, reports 9To5Mac.
With four new reactions, “tears of joy,” “thinking face,” “clapping hands” and “crying face,” this feature is designed to give users the ability to better show how conversations make them feel and to give users “a better understanding of how their Tweets are received”.
Citing the reverse engineer, the report also mentioned that the micro-blogging site is now able to store data about the downvotes feature, which is another indicator that this function will be released sooner rather than later.
The report also notes that the company changed the downvote position as well. It has even added a new tab explaining how downvotes work.
This month, the company has rolled out its in-app tipping feature to all Android users above the age of 18, following the iOS launch in September.
Twitter said the “Tips” feature is geared toward users looking to get a little financial support from their followers through Cash App, PayPal, Venmo and Patreon directly through the app.

Twitter Investigating Bug Causing Unexpected Logouts on iOS 15
Posts on Twitter over the last several hours have shown users experiencing the bug, with some sharing frustrations that the app is requiring them to log back into Twitter upon every app launch.
