Editors' Notes

We rely on Twitter to help us express our thoughts and keep up with the news. And with Twitter’s Apple TV app (our 2016 App of the Year), we’ve also got a bigger window into current events and topical discussions. From breaking-news tweets to live Periscope feeds—and even Thursday Night Football—the benefits of that little bird are always getting bigger.

Fix the app


I've been using this app for 1 and half years and I can't say this is the most satisfying update you guys ever made. There are lot of lacks in this app that should be fixed.

First of all, the quality of default picture is really bad. No matter how good resolution of your picture is, once you set it for your default pic, all you get is blurry and compressed image. This shouldn't happen at all since we can upload a higher quality image than the instagram but we got a lower resolution for default pic?

Second, there should be an edit button as an option for those who accidentally made mistakes in their tweets. This platform has lot of users and I believe many have suggested to the developer to add editing button.

Last but not least, lag issue especially when your phone is almost out of storage. This happens most of the time right after the "storage warning pop up" appeared. This really annoys me when I have to close the app and reopen. I even sometimes have to restart my phone over and over when I thought it was my phone problem. Turns out the problem is the app. Please fix this ASAP. Thank you.

Video quality


Twitter needs an option for users to choose the default setting for the quality of videos that the users want! It would be great if the videos I play on my Twitter feed are always in the best quality, especially for longer videos because the quality in the beginning always seem to be worse than the rest of the video, and no matter how many times I replay or reload it, the video quality would not improve.
