Scared to install this. The last three versions have just been a complete disaster. Twitter has completely ruined this app.

Too late for me, I moved to TweetBot and I've been much happier since. :) I still use the original Twitter app on my iPad, so I may try it there however.

Because it's utterly wretched compared to 3.x?

Wasted screen estate, poor layout, terrible transitions (no swipe transition when you swipe? FFS), removal of useful shortcuts, removal of translation, considerably worse multiple account support, burying direct messages in favour of the entirely pointless discover tab, inability to copy and paste specific words from tweets...

Literally every single change has been for the worse, and they still haven't fixed any of the things that people actually wanted fixing like missing functionality.

I've got to hand it to Twitter. They continue to make they app slower and clunkier with each update. 3 updates ago was the biggest flop and now I'm really pissed at myself for installing this piece of crap. And there was no need for the new logo. I only continue to use it because it's free.

I thought Tweetie (iOS version) stopped working.

I've kept version 3.x (or whatever it was before the disastrous update a few months ago). Not sure I want to go through the reinstall process if I don't like this update.

I've always loved the Twitter for iPhone app and used it exclusively.

Unfortunately this update does away with two of my favorite nitpicky features: 1) it no longer lists the client from which each tweet is sent 2) it no longer provides a map with location data, only the city name.

Losing these features constitutes a deal breaker for me; I have purchased Tweetbot.
