Monday, August 21st, 2017

If you don't like the official Twitter app you can be safe in the knowledge that you're not the only one. Thankfully there are numerous third-party clients that cater to the varying needs of Twitter's millions of users, and Falcon Pro 3 is has been a popular option, even though the last update was back in December 2016. The developer seems to be actively supporting it once again and it's just been updated to v1.6, bringing several notable changes.

Twitter is readying a night mode for the desktop site

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

It's been roughly a year since Twitter made a ton of users very happy and fully introduced a night mode for its Android app. That was such a popular move with anyone who hadn't defected to a third party Twitter client that it seemed a dead cert it would eventually come to the desktop site. That time has now come.

Joe Maring over at 9to5Google noticed the toggle, which resides in a very similar position to where it is in the Android app.

OnePlus support on Twitter is so bad they confuse compliments with complaints

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

OnePlus has come a long way since it thought selling the OnePlus 2 without NFC was a good idea—the OnePlus 5 is a good phone, despite the foibles. OnePlus' support, on the other hand, could use some work. After misleading customers about the jelly scrolling situation, OP is responding to praise with apologies.

After surely being hammered by jelly scrolling complaints, a tweet from @imsarathrk would have been a chance to take a bow. Instead, OnePlus support completely misunderstood.

Twitter rolls out advanced notification filters for muting new accounts and more

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Twitter, like most social media services, is a double-edged sword. It's a great way to keep up with friends, celebrities, and companies in a very quick way. But you can also find trolls, abuse, and other issues that stem from immaturity. In its continuing, but slow-going, battle to combat all of that, Twitter has rolled out some new advanced filters for notifications on the platform.

These allow you to mute other accounts based on several criteria.

Fail: Samsung dishonors Cookie Monster by using a cracker as the cookie emoji

Monday, July 10th, 2017

If there's one thing that everyone knows about Sesame Street's Cookie Monster, it's that he loves cookies, namely those of the chocolate chip variety. In fact, it's more of an obsession than a love. You can imagine, then, how important the cookie emoji would be to Cookie Monster on World Chocolate Day. However, Samsung dishonored our furry blue friend by utilizing a cracker emoji instead.

World Chocolate Day, which took place a few days ago on July 7th, saw an influx of tweets about chocolate and chocolate-related goods.

Comparing the best Twitter clients for Android (2017 edition)

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

For the longest time, the Twitter Android app just wasn't very good. Sure it was functional, but it was clear that Twitter was focusing more on its iOS client. Third-party clients were, for that time period, the absolute best way to use Twitter on Android devices. Even though the official app has improved drastically over the past year or so, especially with the Material makeover, there are still plenty of excellent alternative clients.

Automatic night mode is now available in the official Twitter client

Monday, June 26th, 2017

The first-party Twitter client now has another great feature under its belt. Now you can set the app to transition between the standard white theme and the blue night mode theme automatically, based on the time of day. So if you're tired of having to manually flip between each to prevent sudden night-time blindness during an innocent midnight tweet, you can now rest easy knowing your eyes will be safe, if not from the ravages of Twitter, then at least from bright lights. 

The cycle of development for automatic night mode has been a long one.

Periscope adds ‘Super Hearts’ that can be obtained only via in-app purchase

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

How do you tell a Periscope streamer you like what they've got? Hearts. How do you tell them you really like what they've got? Super Hearts. The latter is a new item in the Periscope app, and it'll cost you. Twitter has added in-app purchases for Super hearts to its live streaming app to squeeze some revenue out of the previously free service.

So, what makes a Super Heart so super?

Twitter 7.0 is official with a new rounded UI, live reply/retweet/reply counters, and more

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

Back in May, the Alpha Twitter app received an updated interface that looked more rounded, with new icons and buttons in tow. Then it reached the Beta branch, with a few more changes. Despite Twitter 7.0 going live a few days ago, the UI changes were part of a server-side update that is rolling out to all users starting today.

The new interface is rolling out to the mobile Twitter apps, Twitter Lite, and TweetDeck "over the coming days and weeks." Most of the buttons are now round, the floating action button now has a quill pen icon instead of the standard plus symbol, profile photos are now rounded, and all the icons have been replaced with wireframe ones.

Twitter 7.0 beta users are seeing a new, more rounded UI via a server-side update

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

Twitter goes through UI changes pretty frequently, but this transition to rounding everything is arguably the most major one in a while. We first saw this late last month in the alpha app, but it's now going out server-side to beta users on Twitter 7.0 through a server-side change.

Thanks, Bryce.

Compared to what we saw a few weeks ago, there don't seem to have been any major changes. But as a recap, profile pictures are circles now, icons are more rounded, you don't see your header photo in the menu anymore, and the options in the menu are slightly rearranged.
