What's New in Version 2.4
This release introduces Topics. A Topic is a way to let you quickly Tweet a group of related Tweets without having to manually reply to yourself and/or manually add the same hashtags over and over again. They are really great for rapid fire live Tweeting events.
You can access Topics by clicking the gear menu in the New Tweet screen. They are also stored in and require iCloud, so you can start a topic on your iPhone and easily continue it on your iPad and Mac.

On the 18th of November, 2015, I notified one of the developers of a rather annoying bug (after I got no response from neither the Tweetbot nor the Tapbots Twitter account). The bug in question is the lack of a notification badge on the dock icon despite it being enabled in the app and in System Preferences. He responded fairly quickly and confirmed my suspicions that I wasn’t the only one experiencing the issue and assured me that it would be fixed in a future version. Fast forward 6 months and the bug is still unresolved. One of the main reasons I choose to use an app to browse Twitter is for immediate and unobtrusive notifications upon new tweets. What good is the app if that feature doesn’t even work properly?
To clarify what I mean when I say “properly”, the developer offered a way around the bug: hide the app instead of closing it and the dock badge will continue to work.
Buggy, publically tweets DMs, developer ignores inquiries and bug reports
When you open the DM screen and hit Cmd+N, you’re not actually creating a DM, you’re creating a public tweet. I have tweeted out personal information. And the developers response? Silence. Not even an apology.
The app has a number of small bugs that make it slightly annoying to use. Things you won’t notice until you’ve been using it for a while, but which start bugging you regularly. A good, worthwhile developer would fix those issues. Tweetbot? Nope. They couldn’t care less.
Despite having TweetMarker setup on every device, the Mac version is unable to reliably sync my position. I’ll read some tweets, quit the app, and when I come back on any device, I’m taken back many tweets behind where I left off. Sometimes, I’ll open the detail view of a tweet, and when I back out, I’m again taken back 20 tweets.
When copying a tweet, the author isn’t attributed, so when I IM a tweet to a friend, they think it’s something I wrote. Plagarism.
I’ve tweeted at the app and developer’s twitter account about these issues repeatedly over the last several months, and they refuse to acknowledge me. Support inquiries go ignored. Funny that the developers of a twitter app can’t seem to figure out how to use twitter. Maybe if they actually used Twitter, their app would be better.
Latest release is buggy
I really like this app, but the both the OS X and iOS versions seemed to have introduced some annoying bugs that seem slow to be fixed.
- The erratic scrolling in the iOS version is really bothersome, and it comes and goes so it’s difficut to capture.
- Both versions seem to have a lot of difficulty playing video recently. The OS X version especially seems to beachball on each video play attempt.
