It's a bad joke, yes. The committee approved some bug fixes to Ranges
and std::format, and the committee is making
a recommendation for implementation vendors not to ship a
C++20-by-the-letter versions of some facilities, but
instead ship the fixed ones, which are incompatible in certain ways.

If you want reports of what happened in the latest committee meeting,
wait for an update to appear
on https://herbsutter.com/ and ignore that twitter feed. If you must
get updates via twitter,
consider following https://twitter.com/herbsutter instead.
