What's New in Version 6.69.1
This update includes a few minor improvements that you may or may not notice.
Too many likes, too much memory
Twitter has always had a problem with storing too much cached data, causing me to have to delete the app and redownload it on a regular basis, and that needs to be fixed.
But recently my timeline has been filled with tweets that people I follow have "liked". Occasionally I have enjoyed finding these tweets but much more often than not I find them either not relevant to me or redundant to the posts of people I follow already. I find it extremely strange that Twitter, despite having had the good sense to allow you to choose to see retweets or not, didn't remember the reasoning behind that choice when they chose to add likes to the timeline. Likes are often less of an endorsement of a tweet than retweets, and therefore are typically not as relevant or entertaining. And yet Twitter offered no recourse to eliminate, or at least limit, the amount likes that show up in your timeline. I really cannot fathom how the same company that recognized the need for "turn off retweets" couldn't see the same need for likes. Although, I do hope that this will be fixed in a manner that won't require me to individually select "turn off likes" for each person I follow, and a blanket option will be available.
Still think Twitter needs a better way to organize your followers so that you can more easily create separate timelines (lists, imo, are an inefficient half measure)
Urgent! Money scamming going on in twitter.
I believe there is scamming going on. People are pretending to be celebrities and asking people to send them large amounts of money claiming it's for concert tickets. Twitter needs to make it so that we can copy our entire message so that we can report this suspicious activity. Facebook needs to do the same thing. Make it so we can copy the entire message that needs to be reported. Please do something about the scamming. The scammers are pretending to be celebrities. It's not fare to our real Celebrities. Please investigate and get to the bottom of of it. Thx. I need to be able to copy the entire content of the messages that I have. Question: Now I'm left with who is really who on twitter. Aka What caused the alarms to start going off was when they started asking for money. A real celebrity would not do that. Plus they wouldn't put pressure on someone and then block a fan because they didn't get what they were after. Please give us the ability to copy our messages in their entirety.
Data problems and trust issues
Having a 16GB phone I know the importance of backing up often. But there have been 3 times I’ve gone to take a picture, couldn’t because there was no space, and saw Twitter had almost 500MB of cached media. I’m going to miss moments because this app thinks 6mo twitter photos from strangers are more important? I have to delete this app way more than I should. A “Delete Data” button is so simple but missing for Twitter.
Other than that, I’ve been a little distrusting the way Twitter has secretly started to rearrange my timeline, introduce “quality” filters, and otherwise notify me of tweets that have nothing to do with me. I have no problem with Twitter monetizing better—everyone knows they’re overdue. But the signs of subterfuge need to slow down a little bit and Twitter should take more time to announce what they’re actually trying to do.
