    If someone wants me to see something they can retweet it. If they like it I don't need to see that. That's one reason I get annoyed with Facebook. I don't need it here also. It seems to be getting worse too. I see more and more "this person liked this"... I don't care at all. If they wanted me to see it then they'd retweet. It also makes it so I don't want to like anything because it's just ending up spamming everyone else. I can scroll down to see tweets that happened while I was away. No special prompt necessary, thanks. Also if I click "Show me fewer like this" or "stop showing me this"... then perhaps I'd like to see that feature never again. Full Review

    I have an email address associated only with Twitter. I'd just love to know why Twitter mails me Tweets from the local government which I do not follow on Twitter, have absolutely no interest in, never read any of their tweets. I never shared my location with Twitter and deny access to it. It's been going on for years now. I hate the "WE know what you want although YOU don't know it" attitude based on some awfully poor learning algorithm. Full Review

    In face book you scroll down to read and stuff keeps loading .. New feeds are marked and an arrow comes.. In twitter for window you scroll up to read and new stuff is loaded on top (with a mark at bottom distinguishing olds and new tweets).. This android version does not allow that distinction...

    App is terrible, uses a lot of memory. So slow at loading compared to other apps. Crashes on a daily basis. Far too many AD's which only adds to it being so Disappointing!!! Full Review

    Videos don't play ~90% of the time. Frequent, baffling visual bugs. "Other people liked" tweets now spam your timeline and there's no way to turn it off. These issues have existed for months and they don't seem to be getting fixed any time soon. Latest update change my settings too, which should never happen. Patch notes are meaningless, which just shows that they don't care Full Review

    Ever since the update that got rid of the "font size" option it has made the app very hard to read for me since some pages use larger font but the timeline uses smaller type. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars.🌟 Full Review

    This is one of those "few" apps, that the developers thought their way through, so carefully, that even in its most basic form, ☆Twitter's☆ functionality would be 4ever timeless; for all ages. Thanks Full Review
