    The new system where "agressivley retweeting" and or being active on Twitter in general gets you banned. Surprise, the one time I'm active on this sorrowful excuse of an app/site I get locked out of it. I understand there's a major bot problem, but this is just lazy and you need to look at the profiles themselves rather than just having an automated system. Full Review

    Since the last update every time I exit the app and then open back up I get logged out. I had to reset my password via the website as I was unable to through the app. Once in it says 'failed to load feed' what's the point of the app if it doesn't work? One star untill sorted.

    Horrible can't get on my account. There is no help. I haven't been on for at least three years. No way to recover my account. Twitter would be better if they worked on care like Facebook does. I bet there is no Twitter team members going to read this. So fustrated and tired of trying to get back on. Full Review

    Clare MacLaren Published date: July 19, 2017

    Just uninstalled and re-installed as the app suddenly stopped working. It insists that I log in every time, and then tells me that my tweets "can't be retrieved at this time" and to check my internet connection. The reinstall has made no difference - I can access the account fine on my PC , but there is a major issue with this app on my Sony XZ. I now see from the string of other reviews that I am not alone. Twitter Support is non-existent for this issue. Basically, I now can't tweet from my phone!! Useless!!! Full Review

    A Google User Published date: July 19, 2017

    After saying thanks for returning the option to change font size with the 12.6.17 update it suddenly disappeared again and the font went small again after a few hours?? What's going on? 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

    Updated my phone to nougat 7.1.1 today and the app keeps booting me. Every time i exit it i have to sign in. It then sticks and says it cannot retrieve my feed saying something's gone wrong. It's in a continuous loop. My phone is an Xperia Z5 premium. I've seen others with the same issues have also posted. If you need additional information please let me know. Full Review

    iOS menu at bottom needed or give options to switch menu to top or bottom as per user choice. I use Samsung galaxy s8 plus it's bit difficult to reach top and a 2 handed operation becomes necessary or activate native single handed mode. Pl fix the issue by providing the switchable option for Twitter menu bar. Full Review

    Poor implementation of password reset within the app. So when you click on the email link... It opens the app straight to the login page... Kinda useless, had to delete the app, so that android opened the link in chrome... I wonder how qualified the programmers are... Full Review

    I love you Twitter! By far a way better tool to connect with ppl than Facebook. Not to mention, you aren't bombarded by advertising and can actually check your feed without every other post being an add. There are add accounts but they can be avoided, just block when they follow you. If you just want to connect based on interests and current events, and avoid the Facebook add attacks, this is the app for you! Full Review

    Unable to tell profile names, if the retweets are turned off. The ones I know I turned off, still show "turn off retweets". Like to see an option to list all profile names that have retweets turned off. Like to see an added feature to have multiple images in replies. Lack of general email support.😭 Full Review

    I love this app but the new update has completely annihilated twitters functions on Sony smartphones. nothing loads - tweets, photos, profile, It says check internet connection and it also won't stay logged in. shambles.

    PLEASE add the font size option. Im begging you! This is a HUGE accessibility issue for any person with visual impairment or disability. Do you hate handicap people? Seriously, why did you remove the font size options from the app?? it's been countless updates since 7.0 and you haven't returned this feature. Ridiculous and inconsiderate. Do you even read feedback? This is absurd how long to readd such a small feature. Wish I could give negative stars. Full Review

    It stopped working since I had a software update on my Xperia Z5 Compact. I hope you will fix the issue ASAP. I'm addicted to Twitter and I would like to change back the rating from 1 to 5. "Funnily" the Twitter Lite is working. 18/07/2017: I just updated Twitter, it's still not loading in anything. It says you don't have network. Totally wrong. Full Review

    In regards to the "While You Were Away" bit. Every single day I hit "Dismiss this", and respond "No" to "Do you like this?", yet every single day it comes back like nothing changed. How many times do I have to press No before twitter gets the hint to stop displaying that feature? Also -1 star for discontinuing support of the official widget. Full Review

    The latest Android update on Sony Xperia has killed this app. Signs you out and then can't retrieve any tweets or timelines. Sony says it's Twitter's issue, Twitter don't say anything. It's a big issue when you're the social media bod for your firm and you can't use the app! Full Review
