    Incredibly underrated social media community. You don't know comedy until you read a witty tweet and inexplicably chuckle for hours. You're missing out on the funniest random video from the corner of the internet. And let's not forget about the memes! Perfect for passing time on the subway, reading on the toilet and avoiding authentic human interaction. Full Review

    Tool used by the #NSA . Don't believe me that's your problem. I posted something on twitter and facebook banned me and it was only evidence of corruption in the DNC. Figure it out. Who's who here??? Created a new account, didn't say a thing. Suspended. Soros is playing the left for fools. Soros robbed the Jew's who Hitler slaughtered. Soros funds the DNC, Antifa, BLM, Hamas, Hezbollah, Isis, Alqueda,,,,,,,, Now Twitter has been busted by undercover reporters. Soon they will be sued. They are viewing your private MESSAGES PEOPLE!!!

    It would be better to opt into getting tweet notifications for ones that include pictures AND video or just pictures OR videos instead of ALL tweets or only live videos. Kind of gets annoying getting notifications every 5 seconds from some accounts 🙄 Full Review

    Lots of device controls so I can actually control what Twitter accesses! Great job Samsung! Oh! Twitter is awesome, too! And the BEST way to keep up with the truth! Thank you Mr. President Trump! Now, if you could make it possible to edit a Tweet after it's made. I hate grammatical errors, and sometimes, I don't catch them before I hit enter. Fix this please! Full Review

    App is completely unusable. Been updating to make sure it's the latest version but problems are not addressed at all - and this has been so since last year, even after reporting to Twitter support. Cannot retrieve ANY tweets. Keeps saying it's a connection issue, but my connection works fine for everything else. (have been using mobile Twitter ever since.) App also logs me out EVERY time I exit. What's the point of having the app then? Full Review

    The app is working good (with some bugs on video playing) but still it lags on my 1 GB RAM smartphone. Further on viewing images/GIFs/Videos the inbuilt button on twitter app is noy working, to get outside of the screen I have to use the defauly back key. On viewing another user profile, twitter takes more memory and CPU usage and make the app lagging Full Review

    So drafts are permanent now then? If I delete drafts they are still there, they don't disappear if I tweet them and if I edit them I'm stuck with the original and the edited version. Edit: Another update and it's still impossible to remove drafts once they've been made. Full Review

    I think the "TwitterVerse" is an excellent platform for exacting truth. My first extended debate on this platform got ~38,000 impressions & (I still don't know what that means & frankly, don't care, but it sounds neat-O mOsquito) believe it continues to be an excellent avenue for centralized, topical discussion & nearly-immediate news sharing. I just reached my first year on the platform & it continues to impress. The tweet-character limit doubled recently, which is spectacular. I highly recommend downloading... Full Review

    I've been trying to log into my account and it's asking me for SMS verification code but no message with the code is being sent to my phone. This new security system in place is too cumbersome... I've been told to change my password thrice in one week now... I've been logged out for 3 days now cos of the SMS code which is not being sent... My username is dozziy Full Review

    First shadowbanned, now just banned. Twitter punishes users with political ideals that don't align with it's own. I already uninstalled the mobile app. If my account functionality isn't restored immediately, I'm done with twitter. Seems like a good time to Get On Gab! Full Review

    I don't care for the new format for moments, being a vertical scroll instead of horizontal. If there were a progress bar that would make it a little better, but would still prefer to return to the horizontal format Full Review

    App bugs out every other time I use it. Have to close it and reopen everytime. Not to mention if I tap to view a tweet then back out to my feed it scrolls me back to where I was when I last closed the app instead of where the tweet I tapped on was in my feed. Stupid. Full Review

    Twitter is one of my favorite social media platforms. I've met people from across the globe—folks I otherwise never would have had an opportunity to meet. I think it's the best platform for customer service, and breaking news events. The app is missing a few features from the desktop version (hello Emoticons and GIFs!). And I really, really want an app version of Tweetdeck. At least Twitter allows for multiple accounts to be logged in. It would just be nice to have a universal notification, @reply, and DM stream for all accounts. 😁 Full Review

    Update 1/16: I had hoped today's update would fix my issues but still no fix after months "THIS MEDIA IS NOT AVAILABLE BECAUSE IT INCLUDES CONTENT YOU'VE CHOSEN NOT TO SEE" I've chosen, I've chosen to see!! I enabled show me sensitive media and it stays hidden despite that (mine only). Why is it taking so long to get this right? Also months now DM read receipts still not working even though I enabled it... never had a problem till now... tick always stays gray, never turns blue so I have no idea if and when my dm is seen. This is very important to me pls fix asap with next update, then I will give 5 stars. And pls bring back the squared avatar or at least give us the choice... hate the rounded profile look. If you're not center posed, parts of your face will be cut off. Not good! 😝👎 Full Review
