'glitz' for 'glitch'

Glitz suggests frippery, something shiny but useless. It’s a pity glitches don’t sparkle, glitter, glister even, for they’d be much easier to find.

Status update. 50000 immigrants who won visa lottery are stripped of citizenship after computer glitz.

Visa stated that it was an obvious technical glitz in the system.

It does service as a verb too:

Why does my computer glitz and sometime the loading symbol keeps spinning but nothing loads or when get server not found error what dioes that mean …

Or perhaps the word refers to more than one glit?

... is some place where I havnt clean up the models where u have one texture that overlap other texture making look like bugs or computer glits.

I noticed that the guy before me also didn’t withdraw any money so I’m assuming it’s a glit in the system.
