Missing SO many features

This is a computer, it needs to have at least all the features that my iPhone 5 does… It needs to have a better notification system. For example when someone mentions me in a tweet and I get a banner notification when I’m using Safari or something I should be able to click it and it should take into the app not to your desktop website so I can sign in and click notifications! When your direct messaging someone I should get a notification that will have an opton for me to reply right from the banner notication without me even having to leave the app I’m uisng (like how the Apple Messages app works). I should also be allowed to turn on notifications for a user and be able to favorite/retweet the tweet right from the notification when it appears. The point is, you have a huge company and this isn’t too much to ask. Give us the features that iPhone users have and maybe even change the UI because it could use it. I know you might not have as many users on the Mac app but you should care about all your users and any applicaton that you release to the public.

Good, but could be even better

First things first: Having me CONFIRM a retweet when I specifically clicked RETWEET is annoying. Please get rid of it or give me the option to turn it OFF. Next, like other reviews have said, the ability to show animated GIFs would be great, along with the ability to select a darker theme. And since pictures/GIFs/videos are all becoming a larger part of Twitter, the ability to choose how I’d like images displayed (cropped, shrink-to-fit, etc) would be nice. Finally, some sort of timeline syncing across devices would be nice. Don’t put me at the “top” of the tweet timeline when I start the app - put me where I left off, regardless of what device I was just using.

And I may be beating a dead horse here, but 140 characters…really? I know that the point is to keep things simple and “to the point,” but just as the world is moving away from text/SMS messages to other platforms that offer unlimited message sizes, Twitter needs to evolve and up the character count.

Nice but missing features

The Twitter app for OS-X is nice and easy to use. But I’m amazed at what it lacks compared to its iOS cousin. A case in point: you can’t mail a tweet. Ridiculous. The best you can do is make a screen cap of it and then mail it. Is it too much to ask for a little feature parity?

I’m all for simplicity, but a little functionality would be nice. The lack of capabilities with the Twitter app makes me wonder about the alternatives available. Unless of course, Twitter decides to conveniently block these, which the company has done in the past.

Memo to Twitter: please do better, especially if you won’t allow more powerful third party apps to work with your social network. Thanks.
