    Tweets suddenly randomly out of order, showing 21 hour old tweets before ones made moments before. The settings for showing the "best tweets first" are disabled and these tweets aren't in a "Hey, youre might have missed this" section. So much for "making Twitter a better place" as your patch notes have said for the last who-knows-how-many updates =/ Full Review

    The information they have on line to help someone does not work. The emails to contact somebody does not work. So if you call no one picks up but the message tell you to email someone which doesn't work. It sounds like they just need to clean house in fire everybody there, and hire new people they know what they're doing Full Review

    Greetings. My hashtags are not working properly on my posts. When I click on the hashtag, and look under latest posts, I can find my posts. However, whenever someone else does the same thing, my post is nowhere to be found. Is there anything that you can do to fix the issue? Thank you for your time. Have a pleasant day. ***Problem still not fixed after countless tweets & messages to support & Twitter. Full Review

    App generally works fine except for two problems. 1. For as long as I can remember typing in a direct message chat lags to hell and is slow in general. 2. And most recently in 2017 Sep-Oct Tweets will fail to send and break the client requiring a force stop to get it working again. Poor quality for a prominent app. Full Review

    These useless notifications that keep coming REGARDLESS of my twitter settings blocking them. Stop spamming us with notifications we don't care about. I can't tell if Twitter's devs are honestly incapable of fixing bugs or if this isn't a bug at all. Full Review

    Prickly Pear Published date: October 18, 2017

    The reliability of this app is poorer than ever. One out of two tweets, the app refuses to send the tweet. Three tweets, and the app dies. Trying to report the problem freezes the entire phone and removes all the UI and icon from the screen, leaving nothing but the background. now I gotta reboot the phone. Right now the app is refusing to even show me the timeline and everything else. How do you guys manage to update all the unnecessary stuff, like showing other people's likes, but screw up basically everything that actually matters to us, the users? Full Review

    Multiple videos sometimes work together while I am opening only one? And the most important thing is the bar. It is very hard to reach. It should be in the bottom (down) same as the IOS Also, there should be a button or something to touch to go to the top of your timeline but without refreshing it. Like IOS too. Thanks Full Review

    It's social media and as such the best. Actually anxious to get the update for more characters per tweet. I actually do not prescribe to all the other forms of social media the subscribers generally are better able to to provide the kind of intriguing content that is actually stimulating. Love it Full Review

    The new version of twitter does not work with brand new expensive LG V30. Can't log in keeps telling me that there should be tweets but can't load & to try later. This socks on so many levels. To have a $800 phone that I can't use. Miss my twitter followers & the ones I follow. Will have to go back to using the old phone & return the beautiful V30. Full Review

    Truly awful app. Hijacks the back button stack when it opens links from other apps, and the search results pop-in with just the right delay such that you are nearly forced to tap on the wrong result. Full Review

Twitter needs to fix it's app. In the meantime I'm using a third party app. Full Review

    Sick & tired of being blocked for allegedly strange activities in my account. Even after I spent more than half a day without using it! And the steps to unblock my account are useless. They say they'll send a code by calling my number and the call never comes! I ask for help and they send me some steps to follow that will never be the ones I will encounter once I log in. Sick & tired!!!!! Full Review
