Has great potential

had to log in twice one for desktop view and one for mobile view. Deskstop view is utter crap doesn’t auto update?!? its like running two twitter app in one tab what the heck.

This App Is Trash

The app freezes from time to time. Some of the functions don’t work properly. Not worth the $1.99 at all. Better off using the internet.


Love this app, beats the original twitter app. Customizable as well.

5 Stars.
