    I started to use Twitter since the day it was "twitter" like plain text format. I have seen it evolving day by day and now its so good that it has became my all in one Social app. Getting Social or Capture News; Have Fun or Show-off or Getting updates on latest trends. It is there for every thing. Getting quick Customer Support from Brands is now too much easy thanks to Twitter. Very much Satisfied with the App. Keep it going with the good work Team. Full Review

    I always love twitter and this app was great up until about a week ago. Notifications are super messed up now and they usually disappeared when you click on them or read them on twitter but now they don't and you individually have to remove them from yours phones notifications. It's so annoying. Also on the app, the notifications number, stays until your refresh.. just a little thing but boy, it's it annoying. Full Review

    "see more tweets" button loads tweets then I have to scroll all the way to the bottom and hit the same button again in an attempt to see all the tweets in my timeline, but after you do it so many times, tweets just stop loading completely. so in order to see all the tweets, you must log in every few hours and stay up to date. I want to load everything and read it all in one go but you guys keep making that more and more difficult, very frustrating Full Review

    I've used Twitter off and on for a few years. Within the last couple weeks, I decided to get active on Twitter. Downloading the app, the first screen you see is "get started" screen. But if you click login on the bottom, and attempt to log in with your existing account, it just keeps looping you to the "get started" screen. Very disappointing. Full Review

    Paul Published date: February 16, 2018

    It's all great but I wish they would make it possible to filter out retweets from regular tweets (toggle on/off) as regular tweets are more relevant and "Real Time" than some of the rt junk. Also ability to add personal notes to contacts in app (or via a linked side app). It would be good for tracking history of contact with a person (when met, how, birthdays etc) Full Review

    Photos and videos rarely load when I'm connected to my home wifi, which is fast and good using any other app or device. But Twitter on my Pixel 2 XL (and before on my old Galaxy Note 4) will spend forever trying to load any photo or video, including profile pictures, and it NEVER loads if it doesn't load immediately. If I switch to LTE everything loads immediately. This has been a problem with this app for a long time. I don't see how it could be my wifi, because if I open web Twitter on my phone on wifi, everything loads normally. FIX IT!!! Full Review

    Should have the option to edit linked apps. Like how you're able to link Facebook and have tweets and retweets share to Facebook. I'm not able to stop it in the app. I actually need to log in on a computer. Also, I believe it should have a share to Facebook option right next to the like and retweet buttons Full Review

    I support tougher regulations on tweeter as a platform to enforce accountability for its content. Neutrality is a cowards stands given that most people that use it have no training in vetting their information. Full Review

    Login is buggy since the latest update. And one thing have always made confused. The app hardly loads comments and posts my tweets when im on my wifi. But works when im on mobile data. This is frustrating too cus i have a high speed wifi and i expect it to work fine. But its not the case. I like the app. Hopefully there will be more fixes soon. Full Review

    Powerfull platform sharing news & breaking stories. Will however never get rid of "bots" & people using for promotion of own agendas and "faceless" racial tension. Twitter can't control all but this can be managed by ethical users ignoring & blocking unwarranted comments / people. It's social platform and both good & ugly have access. Great forum though for positive debates & humour. Extended character enhancement great addition. Full Review

    Like it but I wish it would stop suggesting whom to follow. Trump comes up every time... is that a system prompt or is there any significance to the suggestion? Just stop with the suggestions. Full Review

    This is apparently only a problem on the Android app but images are uploaded out of originally selected order. Effectively ruining all past present and future tweets that requires you to view images in a specific order. Please fix this now. Full Review

    The app is really good and it's able too keep everything in order. But I think I can agree with most people saying that "the things you missed" part is really annoying and really unnecessary give how you see posts that you already saw. But other than that the app is pretty good Full Review

    So there was a issue with assigning personalized ringtone notification within the app. That problem consist of whenever you select the notification and back out, the ringtone isn't saved. The way to properly configure the ringtone would be to select the ringtone and then back out of "Push Notification" to "Notifications". This saves all the configurations for your phone. Full Review

    The app itself is great and a good tool for expressing what I want to say, share and get out there loi in 140 characters (more characters allowed, now! Thank you ) Oh, I left out: Gifs, emojis, Meme and more ~ DOWNSIDE, There's too much Negativite talk from users. CONSERVATIVES targeted for tweeting What we Think? I'm not a Robot, I'm human. WHERE DO YOU THINK ideas come from? The human brain, not computers. I only use it to stay informed on those people I enjoy reading about! Yes I do comment at times. WHY not? Everybody does, even Lil birdies Do. How do I know this? My Mom always said, After I asked her MOM, How did you Find out and Know? Her Response, "Oh, a little birdie told me." Now, my children, ask ME, How Do I know? Well, now You Know... Loi 😄 Full Review

    The app works fine but I'm very worried about the morality of society at large in the 21st century. Why is racism so prevalent in 2018? We are allowing "them" to divide our nation & once we're divided we'll be easy to conquer. We need to come together as ONE nation people, PLEASE!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! Full Review

    I do enjoy the app more than I used to, but I a problem I notice is when Twitter has a "hiccup" and my tweet is in limbo, it won't post. When I click the posting notification, my tweet is lost and I need to re-type it entirely. Either fix that, or at least make it to where it saves them as drafts when that happens please. Full Review

    Doesn't load properly. Takes lot of time for tweets to publish. Has no control over moderation functions leading to banning of artists/ persons we follow without explanation. Twitter is behaving more like a Kangaroo court than a platform for opinions. Full Review
