Timeline Filters. Quickly filter a timeline to show only tweets with media, retweets, links, or create your own keyword or rules-based filter. Access these saved filters any time with two taps.
Mute Filters. Hide Tweets in your timelines by specific users, keywords, hashtags, or even the client that published the Tweet. Select the length of time to mute and use regular expressions for smarter muting.
Profile Notes. Ever forget why you followed someone or wanted to jot notes for future reference? Create private notes on a user’s profile that only you can see.
Custom Timelines. Create and manage public or private lists and then use them as curated timelines. Tweetbot allows you to quickly switch between lists and even use one as your main timeline.
iCloud Sync. Tweetbot syncs your read position and much more so your experience is seamless when switching from desktop to mobile and vice versa.
Tweet Topics. Start tweet topics to automatically chain together multiple Tweets (with the ability to append optional hashtags) and create tweet storms.

Ratings and Reviews
I must admit I was a little annoyed when Tweetbot had to announce that a few features were having to be disabled on their app due to Twitter being a set of morons and pulling the plug on various API’s. However in truth in finding that I’m not missing them as much as I thought I would.
The tweetbot app for me is simply perfect. Sleek design, fast, efficient and gives you just what you want. Twitter’s insistence of showing you what other people like on their own app drives me insane. I don’t care, and it is for this reason (amongst others) that I keep using tweetbot. If the guys can reinstate bits in the future, great. If not, no bother. I’ll still be supporting them. Having your notifications delayed by a few minutes is a small price to pay to retain all of the good bits of the app.
Keep up the good work guys and I look forward to Tweetbot 5.
The best way to experience Twitter in 2019
I’ve used Tweetbot for years now, but the recent changes to Twitter’s official clients have brought just how good it is into sharp relief. It presents you a good looking chronological timeline of tweets from those you follow and pretty much just stays out of your way otherwise.
There’s no fuss of ads, promoted tweets, suggested follows, suggested hashtags, trending stuff, or any of the other algorithmically-driven nonsense that Twitter push on you in their clients that have made it so bad recently.
And when you need to curate what you can see with mutes or filters or blocks, that’s all easy to do and manage, and syncs across all of your devices if you use it on iPad and Mac too. Tweetbot has always been great, but the main competitor getting so much worse makes it even more appealing today.
Tasteful, useful, and better than native app
Tweetbot is a fantastic Twitter app. It had extensive muting features way before Twitter. It has superior list viewing. It has a way more intuitive account switching feature. Each new version may cost money, but the care and attention that goes into each revision is worth that money. More importantly, it makes the experience of useing Twitter itself more pleasurable, and more manageable, than the native app.
If there are any weaknesses, it is likely due to Twitter pulling back on APIs for third-party clients, meaning threading and polls suffer for example, so keep the native app around just as a backup.
