Pretty good, still some issues

Twitter has fixed most of the issues that plagued earlier versions. Stil there are some problems, mainly that DMs are frequently out of date, and much slower (minutes to hours) to arrive than on the iOS app, if they arrive at all. You can click File -> Refresh All, which will sync everything back up after about 30 seconds, but that is unacceptable for a real-time app.

All in all I'd say 4.2.4 is pretty good for tweets, not so much for DMs, which is a shame since they haven't opened up the APIs to allow any other apps access to group DMs (you'd think 2 full years would be enough time).

Just absolutely horrible.

== 4.2.4
Still bad but getting better. Auto scroll-to-top very broken. Doesn’t crash as frequently as it has. Still weird issues with images, like closing when when a new tweet comes in, taking a long time to open, needing to click things 12839 times to open, etc.

4.2.4 Edit: Nope, nevermind… NOT getting better. Now if you’re viewing someone’s profile you’ll get kicked back to your timeline if a new tweet comes in.

== 4.1.3
Still garbage. Expanded pictures close when a new tweet comes in. Videos that are playing inline restart when a new tweet comes in. Crashes when opening an individual tweet or account. New update introduces HUGE delays in new tweets showing up.

== 4.1.2
This is an embarassingly bad app for a company such as Twitter. Frequent crashes if you interact with the app at all. If you enlarge an image, the next incoming tweet will close it. Some buttons/links take multiple clicks to work. The app is fine if you use it 100% passively (just watching new tweets come in.

Has gotten WORSE in recent updates.
