Updated Oct. 11, 2017: it's worse than last update.

I can no longer move/reorder accounts, like I could, yesterday. Plus, there are huge lags, on some accounts. Yes, this is after uninstalling/installing, and then turning my phone off and back on. Is there any beta testing, before new versions are rolled out? It shouldn't be infested with bugs, and lag. Go back to one week ago, please, to version 7.7 or 7.8. Seriously, the last bad update we had, I used to go back to version 6.31.5 (courtesy of downloading it from my Mac), and it was a huge improvement in functionality, despite the giant step backward. It was worth it. Now I can’t even do that anymore, thanks to the bloody update on my Mac! Also, scrolling back to the top of a thread is a hugely bad idea. If you want to make it so we can toggle between seeing the first tweet or the last, great. Give us the option.

Older review (though still applicable):

Revert the app to one week ago, and don't touch it. Now, it lags, has fits and coughs, and quits... It's such a pain. I hate guinea-pigging updates. We shouldn't have to delete and reinstall to reset the app for better functionality.

I chain tweets together, and it's aggravating to be typing along...and have a lag. My fingers keep moving in the hopes that the app will catch up. It does, seconds later, when I should be already on my next tweet.

Needs to do a lot more about harassment

Twitter is awesome but, aside from the usual aesthetic demands, there's an insane amount of online harassment initiated by a community of trolls, most of them likely being bots, but they're allowed to harass and terrorize freely with little repercussion. Twitter needs to act to reign in this targeted harassment, that really started after gamer gate, or people will start to get fed up with the troll army, who all clearly violate twitter terms of use, and go elsewhere for news and social media. Twitter seems to not care whenever someone gets loaded down with literally thousands of abusive tweets and violent threats, unless the press coverage gets too bad of course.

Twitter Review

This app is everything you want in a social media application. There’s something here for everyone. I’ve been using twitter for three years and there isn’t much to say bad about the app. There’s sports, entertainment, breaking news, and even some hilarious videos that’ll make sure you’ll come back. I would recommend twitter to all of my friends (other than the ones already a user) because twitter is where it’s at!
