    I love the app except for two things : 1) Needs an editing function allowing you to edit already-posted Tweets, and 2) needs a scheduling function so that your Tweets will post at a predetermined time. Other than that, the app is great. Easy to tweet. Easy to upload photos and graphics. What else could a girl want? 😊 Full Review

    I love twitter. The new design is so so. I don't really understand. And where is font size go? Now I can't resize the font. If you want to make an update, please make it good. Don't get rid all the option and all that. Full Review

    Well. First, every previous direct messages are GONE!! I participate in some DM groups and there's no access to them. I receive many times the message "leave or accept", for every DM group and DM personal, always asking me with those options, too much annoying. Second, I received "cannot retrieve messages at this time, please try again later" popup message in the app, repeatedly. Third, I cannot search any account for new messages, even if I follow them and back. On PC, I have no problem if I access Twitter website with all my DMs. Please ROLLBACK this update, privacy policy, and restore this feature. I tried uninstalling this app and reinstalled with no success. Full Review

    Really hate this update, why, why, why have you got rid of the option to change font size yet again? It's junk. Do not like the colour scheme either or the way pictures are displayed, what on earth made someone think rounded corners were the way forward, like we actually care! Rubbish, please fix it ASAP Full Review

    Published date: June 21, 2017

    Somehow I cannot enable push notifications since May 2017 (the app's stuck on its “Enabling...” message, and then pops up a floating “There was a problem updating notification settings” report which quickly disappears) and thus I cannot receive them. Any of them. (Even in the latest version of the app, 7.1.0.) Everything's fine except this problem. Older googleable receipts against this problem (such as rewoking access from the Twitter's web interface) do not seem to help anything. And I cannot try a uninstall (for a clean re-install) because HTC One M9 considers Twitter to be its system (non-uninstallable) application. Full Review

    While the new minimalistic look is okay, the space and font size distribution are disturbingly unbalanced. Please let us choose to change font size. And I still cant edit photos in app nor change profile photo and header without the app crashing it's been forever please fix what actually need to be fixed instead of adding problems. Full Review

    Im honestly starting to belivebthat a majority of the devs are disabled. They constantly release update that make extra steps to get to features. Just an absolute terrible set up with default setring making it so you dont see everything on your feed. Another thing unnecessary is it needing to be on the phone memory! It doesnt make any sense! What kind of person decides it needs to be?! Full Review

    10/16/16: Very addictive and interesting Edit 6/20/17: I lowered the rating due to these dumb additions. Here's why: no edit button after a ton of requests, replies with curses will get hidden, this stupid new design sucks, and it favors left wing opinions over right wing opinions and will sometimes ban right wing accounts for no reason.

    Every time it updates it resets all privacy and preference settings. It does not update well if installed to an SD card in device and will frequently return an error of insufficient memory on device to update regardless of whether its installed on the device or an SD card. Honestly, much easier to just login via website. Full Review

    A redesign and STILL you didn't learn that the night is black, not blueish grey. Replace the night mode colour with pure black and not only it looks better, it's far far more friendly to those of us with AMOLED screens in our devices. Just use the same colour scheme you do on Windows, is that so hard? Apparently it is... Full Review

    Why do you make things even more complicated for us? Don't make our mentions can't be seen by the person that we are talking to. Also, I hate it when I followed someone that person didn't get the notification when I followed them but when another person followed them, there is a notification. Kindly fix it. Full Review

    Zorana M Published date: June 21, 2017

    The new update is horrible! Square icons and the option to change font size should make a comeback, also the background of the photo posts changing colour is such an unnecessary thing, it actually makes it hard to look at photos in different lighting because of lack of contrast between the photo and background...

    With latest update I can't change the font size and the default is too small for me. Please add this option again. An edit button would be good, so I don't have to delete and retype the whole tweet when I spot an error after posting. Full Review
