What's New in Version 5.17


• Replies have been redesigned to conform with Twitter’s new display guidelines. The screen names of participants in the conversation are displayed on a single line just below the name of the reply author
- Tapping on (or previewing with 3D Touch) the participants opens the conversation thread
- Long-pressing on the participants (or drag up while previewing using 3D Touch) allows quick access to their profiles

• Responding to multiple people now includes an editor for choosing the recipients
- Tap the clear button (X), hit backspace on the keyboard, or tap on the character counter to quickly remove all but the author of the tweet you are replying to


• Tweet and quoted tweets hide the screen name if there isn’t enough horizontal space to display both the screen name and the full name side by side
• Keyboard focus is restored after attaching images to a tweet
• Viewing a quoted tweet that quoted a different tweet now displays it properly instead of showing a link to Twitter
• Tapping on a profile’s header image opens the full resolution image
• Added physical keyboard shortcuts to direct messages: Navigate threads with up/down arrows, CMD-T (or spacebar or return) to open the selected thread, CMD-N (or tab or return) to move focus to the input field, CMD-W to close a thread
• Up/down arrow keys on a physical keyboard will now select the first visible tweet if on a timeline without a currently selected tweet
• Selecting a tweet (manually or via keyboard) marks it & everything older as read
• Improved performance when autocompleting mentions or hashtags
• Improved timeline scrolling performance


• Fixed an issue with the image attachment panel that could allow it to attach too many additional images to a tweet that already had images attached
• Fixed memory leaks when composing a tweet

Customer Reviews

Wonderful twitter client

Was a bit laggy after latest update, but after deleting and re-downloading it's running as great as ever!

Edit: (NOT) DOA

Won't open anymore. 🤕

Issue quickly resolved. This app is fantastic. Infinitely better than first-party app.


Still think the design of Tweetbot is cleaner, but this is an infinitely better Twitter app than Twitter's own app.

Still really needs to take advantage of the alternate icon functionality of iOS 10.3 or just flatten their default icon.
