Twitter is a free app that lets you connect with people, express yourself, and discover more about all the things you love.
See what your favorite celebs and athletes are chatting about. Be the first to hear breaking news. Catch a glimpse behind the scenes at concerts, sporting events, and more.
Then join the conversation: Tweet your own text, photos, and video to your followers — and maybe make a few fans along the way.
Get inspired. Be social. Even send private messages to friends. All in real time, as big (and little) things happen, from anywhere you happen to be.
Twitter is now available for Apple Watch: Tweet, Retweet, reply and like in a flash. Quickly see recent Tweets and top trends. Share your location, a song, or your thoughts with a flick on the wrist. It's Twitter, but littler.
What's New in Version 6.53.2
Notifications freezing your app? Consider this bug fix the thaw you've been waiting for.
Still some bugs, especially with Notifications
For the most part, the app's been working well, but there are still multiple bugs that I've been encountering for months that have yet to be fixed. For one, Tweets just won't load sometimes, even when my internet connection is strong. Closing and re-starting the app usually fixes that, but it's a bit of an annoyance. Next, the notifications feature is still very broken. Sometimes, notifications, particularly ones for new followers, just don't show up on my lock screen and/or in the app tab. Also, the notification badge on the home screen activates sometimes for no reason; right now, it's showing up every time I leave Twitter and open up some other app. The other essential functions are still great, but it would be awesome if these small details could finally get fixed.
Used to be a great App
Twitter continues to find ways to make itself less and less user friendly. The lastest example is the auto-update feature, which changes your feed entirely from the last time you read your tweets. Basically it's the equivalent of putting the book you're reading down, then coming back later to find someone flipped forward 60 pages. I used to be twitter dependent but now I find myself using it less and less because I spend 60% of my time on Twitter trying to relocate where I last stopped checking my tweets, 20% deleting unwanted ads and 20% using Twitter like I want to and actually used to. Twitter is a great service but will never be a money maker for investors, however the creators of this app seem to be doing anything they can to make a return on investments for stockholders instead of providing the service users want and like. If the trend continues, Twitter will become the new myspace.
Ok but could be better
UPDATE: latest version of this app makes the keyboard disappear sometimes!!! I have to delete & redownload the app whenever this happens. I have an iPhone SE & the most current OS
App needs the ability to to mute words, phrases, and hashtag not just people. Also the out-of-order time line is very annoying, even if you turn it off you still get the 'while you were away' tweets which is bad because it pulls them out of my timeline when I scroll back. Also Twitter endlessly tweaks things like the favorite button without beefing up their anti-harassment efforts or fixing search. Search should automatically exclude blocked users. Also blocked users can still read your tweets if they're RTed into their timeline or if you reply to someone they follow so I'm not sure how good blocking actually is. Also we need Edit Tweet which users have been begging for years for.
