Fantastic app

Probably the best 3rd part twitter app available (compared to others that are free/cost money). I follow a lot of accounts and the app always shows me the number of tweets I have to read (a lot) every time I open it. I really enjoy the muffle feature because I can muffle all the things I don’t want to read and focus on the stuff that actually matters to me. And even if I choose new words to muffle, the app automatically filters them out and I can keep scrolling through my feed without interruptions. I also like the streaming feature on WiFi, but that’s been around for awhile. Haven’t had any problems with the app at all and they’ve always replied promptly to inquiries (like when they were going to update to 280 characters). Keep up the good work! 🦖🦖🐙

This makes Twitter so much better!

I've been using Twitterrific for a long time now, and I've always appreciated how it gives me the simple chronological timeline I want, without "you may have missed" stuff, other people's likes, etc. And it's easy to use. I spend hours a day with it.

Now I'm even more pleased because I can (optionally) muffle those new long tweets. I can see someone tweeted over 140 characters and view the tweet if I choose - but otherwise, I'm back to 140-character Twitter. (Someone else I know is setting his limit at 160 characters.)

Also, there's a character count so I can keep my own tweets from running long. And this nicely designed change came out very quickly after the Twitter change to 280. I couldn't be happier with this app!

Good, needs improvement

Has trouble loading notifications & have yet to see the translator work. Would be much better if it was easier to tweet & reply with gifs. Doesn’t support group messages is a huge disappointment & down fall. Wish the app was more customizable with fonts & colors options. The features you have to buy aren’t worth it when you get all those features for free on the original twitter app. Sick of having to switch back & forth just to see my group messages and use the gifs on the original twitter app when I have paid to be able to do that with this app & can't.
