anyone having an issue with twitter app for iPhone? Ever since they updated the site last week I go through long stretches where tweets won't load.
I had trouble with my Android phone and webpage yesterday on Twitter. I couldn't load any new tweets and it had nothing to do with my wifi connection. I logged out on the computer and immediately just logged back in and it fixed the computer and the phone.

Not sure what happened. This was around 3pm.

I have a new iPhone that I need to power off and on to refresh apps sometimes, no issues with Twitter though.

It's back, my Twitter says "Something is technically wrong," no matter the device or operating system I'm logging in on. It's a glitch of some sort. I can view everything on Twitter but my main feed and new tweets. I hope they fix it, but maybe it's better for my sanity.

Given that you can eliminate ads and read tweets in chronological order using a third-party app, why does anyone use the official app?

started using Tweetdeck whenever I am on my laptop - much better. Twitter app also started putting "What you missed" without giving me the option to close and tell it not to do that. I like to see my tweets in chrono order

If you use twitter and have an iPhone you need to get tweetbot. It's head and shoulders above the "official" app

Yeah I'm done with the Normal app because of this.

Yeah. Twiterrific is also very good. Twitteriffic is accessible and enables you to write image descriptions for visually impaired users, if that's important to you.

But absolutely: with no ads and no "X liked this tweet" injecting random content into your feed, I can't think of a good reason to use the official app. Unfortunately, the Twitter API won't let third party apps display Moments, Polls, or Group DMs but having been on third party clients for years, I don't miss them.

Check out Easy Chirp for a good, free, lightweight desktop client. My friend built it. It's light enough to work in otherwise useless browsers, like the one built into the Kindle.

I was generally successful at turning that off in the past (plus turning off algo timeline).
