Wow! iOS (well, iPhone) Twitter has been improving a lot recently.

Now, if only they would pay some attention to the Mac OS version! C'mon, guys!!

"Send and receive photos via DMs. "

Probably would have saved Anthony Weiner's career.

Visual design has not been updated on the iPad, and iPad still does NOT have support for inline images...

"Send and receive photos via DMs. "


Twitter DMs are the worst. I hate it when people DM me! The main problem is that they appear as new messages individually, on all your devices, so you end up reading the same messages over and over and over again. So annoying!

At least Facebook can keep itself synced between devices.

Can't they PLEASE update the ipad design? So unacceptable that the iPhone version has gone through multiple visual changes and the ipad is still the same.


Lies! The iPad version was recently updated with Helvetica Light instead of Helvetica Regular! :)

Too little too late.

Twitter could've corned private messaging market but they have long regressed and made DM a second citizen. After watching the likes of WhatsApp and SnapChat (and many more) rise up in popularity, Twitter finally updates DM with lackluster UI, feature set, and no API support.

Agreed, both the Mac OS and iPad versions are way behind in terms of updates.


The iPhone app has been completely, totally ruined in the last two major updates.

Thank goodness that the Mac app hasn't been destroyed in the same way.
