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.

Twitter will now dump DMs from people you don’t know into a ‘Requests’ tab

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Twitter can be a fun place to share and interact with your fellow humans. However, it can also be a wretched hive of scum and villainy. That's why keeping your Twitter direct messages open is a bit of a risk, but Twitter is rolling out a feature to keep the riffraff at bay. Soon, all DMs from strangers will be segregated from the messages you care about.

The change to DMs only applies if you have your account set to allow messages from people you don't follow.

Popular Twitter app Fenix gets a 2.0 preview release

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Fenix has been one of the most reliable Twitter clients I've used, but it's falling a little behind other apps. That's to be expected considering the upcoming changes. The developer has been hard at work on a completely revamped version of Fenix, and now you can take it for a spin. Fenix 2.0 is available in the Play Store as a free preview, but be aware the final version will be a new paid listing.

Twitter is testing a new rounded interface in the alpha Android app

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Joaquim Vergès, best known for his work on the Falcon Pro Twitter client, joined Twitter in 2015 to help improve the company's Android app. He left Twitter in March to work for Twitch, and it seems like the company has taken that opportunity to make the Android app ugly again. A new user interface is being tested in the app's alpha testing branch, and everything is round for some reason.

  

Compared to the current design, all user icons are now round, as well as most buttons across the whole application.

Twitter is testing live counters for retweets, likes, and replies on Twitter Beta

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Twitter changes the user interface almost constantly on its beta app - I suppose that's to be expected. The latest new feature in testing is a live counter for likes, retweets, and replies on each tweet. The counter appears to update roughly once a second.

The feature showed up for Artem on Twitter Beta 6.45.0-beta.599, but I am on the same version and don't have it, so perhaps it's a server-side test. You can grab that version from APKMirror if you want to check for yourself.

[Dick Jokes] Samsung burns another customer, this time with an emoji

Monday, April 24th, 2017

I'm not sure if I should file this in the inappropriate and/or sleazy category or if it's just careless enough that it might slide on the right side of awful but funny. The story goes like this: @SamsungMobileUS asked users on Twitter to show the first pic they took with a Galaxy S8. @savEdward replied with "It was a dick pic." Not to be fazed by that answer, Samsung just sent in reply one emoji: a microscope.
