    - 1 star because Twitter deletes my likes. The new update is cool though. You've finally acknowledged thread makers. -1 because @HSUpdating was suspended on a misunderstanding. You are blocking our access to real time information on our idols, which is what we (100K people) signed up for in the first place. I am not an owner I'm an unhappy follower demanding justice. And if the support actually help... Full Review

    Twitter is good for posting my Speedart on and getting the latest updates on my favorite YouTubers. E The reason I got Twitter was to get my name around about me being a speedpainter on YouTube and so far going great! There are a lot of big names out there who are YouTuber Markipk Lied and and such! And I love getting the latest news from them before they post their videos on youtube!!! Full Review

    I give up with it. Countless reviews stating same problem (hmmm, something went wrong). App works on two of my other accounts but not the third. Account works just fine on every other app I try on the phone. It's been going on since July. No response from support. Full Review

    It does not work. No matter what I try, it says 'cannot retrieve tweets at this time. Please try again later'. Have cleared cache, reinstalled, turned off and on phone. I thought things were just meant to work nowadays without all this faff? Twitter developers, please sort this out, it's not just me who has this issue. Full Review

    I am currently using MI A1. The app goes crashed in every 15 minutes. It was very good in iPhone 5s and 6s. Tweeter needs to improve the plateform for Android version. Why u people ask every time for sending reports if u r not going to resolve this issue. This app has very serious bug issue. Hope u will fix this in near future. Full Review

    Most of the time, pics/gifs/videos won't load. I get a loading bar that stops almost immediately, then nothing happens. I can stop and restart the app and sometimes that helps, but not always. One star because this has been going on for a long time with no fix, but they sure are good about making those cosmetic fixes. Update 12/13: In addition to the above, I now frequently am unable to get tweets to post. The sending tweet notification just goes and goes until I manually stop the app and start all over. Utter garbage. Full Review

    Okay so just last week I got kicked out for no reason saying I violated the rules when all I do is retweet and like. I don't even tweet for goodness sake! And now I've been trying to get back in which hasn't been possible. It's really an amazing app which I miss a lot. I'd really appreciate it if you guys log me in . Thanks Full Review

    App is currently crashing every minute or so. Images stop loading and a few seconds later it just closes. Makes doing anything on the app practically impossible. The problem persists after deleting and reinstalling the app. Full Review

    Twitter has definitely embraces the rise of mobile devices. The Android app has, in some important respects, more functionality than it's web presence. Being able to move between accounts, havimg access to the camera, and of course now anything in that's in Lightroom. Mobile is becoming the dominant platform, and in the consumer end of the market, will easily overtake desktop devices. Making mobile the default gateway to their world is ten smart move. As someone once said you either row with the tide, or the tide rows you under. From where I'm standing they're standing on the beach mapping out the waves! Full Review

    I don't like that my likes and other people's likes just turn up in timelines, or that my timeline is out of order. I'd prefer just a nice chronological timeline. Also, suspend Donald Trump's account, he's broken Twitter guidelines several times and should be treated like all users. Full Review

    Cassandre Auguste Published date: December 15, 2017

    The new update is driving me INSANE!!! when I click on the chat button on a tweet, I want to see responses, not make a comment. That's more common sense. When I go to my notifications and go backto my tl, I want to continue reading what I was before. It drives me completely nuts to have to scroll down all the way to go back. The worse is when you scroll until it cannot provide you more tweets and the one you were reeading is gone. STOP updating the tl AND going to the top when new tweets are found. Just saw "new x" I will get there when I get there. I can't stand not finishing to read something because the dang app decide to refresh the whole page. Another issue is when I'm replying and I can't see the comment I'm replying to becausethe page is flashing when I slightly scroll up. If I'm using a hastag to respond and that hashtag is a freaking long one from the original comment, I can't read the hastag and type it without an often empty suggestionlist occupying the whole screen. If there's no suggestions or 1 or more even, show as many lines possible while still being able to see tge original post. It's so annoying. Ugh. Full Review

    I used twitter app for both of my android phone. However, one of my phone (LG X power) cannot load images and profil pictures in my timeline, but for videos it doesnt had any problem. I login with the same account and set the app on same setting for both of my phone. In another phone it works normally, but with LG X power this issue happened. I contacted twitter support and it doesnt help me at all. Full Review
