A step back with this “upgrade"

I was actually really happy with the prior version of the twitter client. My main gripe was the lack of video playback. For some reason Twitter decided to not only add those missing elements but change a lot of the interface. Now its slow and clunky, I can’t copy usernames from their profile page, I get odd notifications and the colors stink. If I could downgrade to the prior version I would as the video playback is not worth all that was lost.

I found an older version that hadnt updated on one of my other computers. I saved it aside and copied it back to my other machines so im back to running 3.1.2. The trick to not have it constantly update on you is to put the old version somewhere else (outside of Applications, like your user home folder). Then run the old one and pin it in your dock etc. The new one will keep updating and being crappy and you can ignore it.

Several updats since the original review and yet its still slow as heck and slows down over time. Still a terrible update.

still a mess. how??

*Updated review for 4.2.2* Crashes every time I get a DM now.
Constant beachball and performance issues with new version to the point where i have to use the webclient to actually use twitter on my mac now. Using a recent MacBook Air and MacBook Pro and current on all OS X updates. Fix this. Also, the UI is massive and needs to have a tighter/smaller option. takes up too much space and isn’t needed. I like where you’re going with the dark design.. just feels unfinished. Twitter should be lightening fast, super responsive and lightweight. Hire a team of engineers with macOS experience. They are quite abundant in your area.

Nice Update…NOT

With this recent update to Twitter they really dropped the ball. The app freezes EVERY SINGLE TIME you click anything on the app. It only works to scroll on your feed. If you want to click a link or any kind of button on the side of the app, it crashes and you have to force quit. I am running a MBPr 2015 and running OS Sierra. TERRIBLE UPDATE. Do they not test it before it goes out? The app doesn’t work. Advice to Twitter…fire whoever was in charge of quality control for this.

oh, and LOL @ the last update being labeled “bug fixes”. Was the app actually working considered a bug?
