SwiftKey glitch causes double trouble for Android users after update (UPDATE)

The bug appears randomly, according to our source, and is also affecting his girlfriend's handset as well. She is totin' a first-generation Motorola Moto X.
Last month, SwiftKey updated its Android app, adding the SwiftKey Hub. The latter is where you go to adjust your settings, change themes and customize your QWERTY. The update also added a new default theme and continued its integration with password manager Dashlane.
We have asked SwiftKey to comment and as soon as we hear back from them, we will update this story.
Thanks for the tip, Rodrigo!
UPDATE: We have heard from SwiftKey and here is their official statement: "There is a known bug that, in certain instances, causes SwiftKey to add duplicate words when typing within comment or forum fields. Our engineers are currently working on a fix for this as quickly as possible. We encourage anyone experiencing any issues to reach out to the SwiftKey Support team at https://support.swiftkey.com."

I don't get all this crap because I use the stock keyboard.

SwiftKey is terrible. Once a excellent keyboard, now it's bloated, uses more battery. Yes it's doubling up the words, especially in native exchexchange email.

Working on it, my booty. This bug has plagued several of my devices for a year, but only sporadically. Today was worse than normal so I switched to native keyboard. Don't get me wrong. SwiftKey is indispensable for my work typing via Android. I dig it hard. But I've been dealing with this bug forever, even after clearing cache etc.
