    Twitter... Encapsulated in one app is everything that's wrong with this world we live in. (That takes some doing)! You need to be responsible for some of the content on your app Twitter. Get some editors in, spend some money. Doing nothing to combat the bad elements on your social media site & Airing homophic, anti semitic tweets is tantamount to being complicit. Full Review

    This app is very hard to use! I dislike this app very much there are so many glitches and it takes up too much space! But the short amount of time that I had it, it was probably the best social media app I had every had. When I tried to download it said I had to delete almost all of my apps in my phone! And I not had like 2! And those app were bad, but better than this app! Way better! That was all I had to say for this app! Thank you for your time. - Sara Full Review

    Awesome app all about what you want to see and what you want to be up to date on, right? Well we should be able to tailor our TL to match what we choose to see. Personally, I don't care about who someone else follows or what someone else likes. My Twitter is my social interaction version of news. Full Review

    Every fourth tweet hangs my app. Forced to scrub it from memory, relaunch app and retweet the hung tweet while transmitting. Hello Twitter. This is 2017. Not the year 1994 for this to happen. Btw this has been happening for the past three weeks with all the updates Twitter pushes. Stupid programmers. Full Review

    December 2017 Twitter is going full Stasi Communist and banning anyone who thinks "wrongly" outside party lines. Speech is subjective. If you ban anyone because speech you've just admitted losing the argument. Idiots. History will not be kind to those who oppress free thought, speech and ideas. Full Review

    My account got suspended, although I've filled an appealed but it looks like i can't get my account back. So there's no point to have this app in my phone anymore. I also have tried to download my twitter data, but in the data i didn't find any results because it seems all the data has actually been deleted. Anyway thanks for the great memories of the past 5 years Full Review

    Awesome app, it's a good thing that you increased the number of characters. But one problem though, you need to find a way to enable editing of tweets instead of just deleting, I may have mistyped something and need to edit the spelling or something like that but the app does not allow, check that then be perfect Full Review

    Twitter is in full support of bullies and scam artist but will remove the account of a person for reasons that are utterly ridiculous and false. Upon reading other reviews. Thank you for the ones making my point with the bullies, trolls, racist people and pornographers. These are the people allowed to run wild on Twitter but permanently suspend many good people that tweet nothing vile, offensive, profane, and harass nobody. Twitter support does absolutely nothing when showing proof of a person becoming verbally abusive when another person refuses to send them money. Please tell me how this makes sense. It's too bad this will eventually cause Twitters end and pave the way for another social media app. One that protects the innocent and punishes those who are rotten to the core. Obviously Twitter wants the worst type of users here. Full Review

    Twitter is THE app to use! I am addicted. it's so nice to follow any1. even celebs. and so easy to make new friends who share similar interests with you. All that I Wish as a Twitter user is that we could see all our tweets. I get sentimental/nostalgic (whatever u wanna call it) sometimes I like to go back and see things I posted from even a yr or so ago. like FB, Sometimes I GO back thru and read old posts all the way back when I first got FB in high school. WISH Twitter was able to do SAME. I can only view the first several hundred (maybe) RECENT tweets I have done lately. also: I tried the ' get your Twitter archive' button numerous times but it never works. wish u could either just do it on the Twitter app OR they could come out with an app 2 support this feat. like a Twitter baby app that is able to show ALL your tweets u have ever had.

    NO ONE AT TWITTER IS LISTENING! It gets more irritating to use. I see that annoying feature "In case you missed it" has been upgraded to see less often. Why doesn't Twitter listen? I don't want it. 😠 That annoying message "In case you missed it" kept returning when I keep saying I don't like it, I don't want it..... It still keeps returning, in other forms. No one is listening! 😠 Extremely annoying features, each update it just gets worse. 👎👎 I can't use an older version of Twitter any longer so I'm besieged with annoying features, "designed to make Twitter an even better place"! I think not..... Perhaps it's time for me to ditch Twitter... 😕 Full Review

    These days, Twitter app freezes often. Have to close and restart. Also, Twitter frequently unretweets controversial political tweets I have retweeted. The following is what I wrote in June 2017: app was acting weird on my phone. So I checked to see if there was an update. I updated it and opened it back up, and it had deleted two hours worth of notifications. You would think by now with all the money they have made, they would have been able to get rid of bugs like this. Disappointed and keeping an eye on gab to see how long it will take for the migration to take place. Full Review
