Editors' Notes

We rely on Twitter to help us express our thoughts and keep up with the news. And with Twitter’s Apple TV app, we’ve also got a bigger window into current events and topical discussions. From breaking-news tweets to live Periscope feeds, the benefits of that little bird are always getting bigger.

Thank you Twitter

Twitter is far more than most people think. For me it has brought me into a community of wonderful caring people from all walks of life. There is no class system, all are equal. You could be chatting to a scientist or a road sweeper. Twitter is communicating in real-time, unlike the other popular social media platform, so you know there is nearly always someone there to talk to. There are many different clubs that meet on Twitter using hashtags to come together. There is support, both emotional and sometimes financial. Some who are socially isolated or housebound in real time feel part of a community, Twitter is their lifeline. Some who are suffering a personal tragedy or serious illness are supported and some can share celebrations. Some who are lonely have friends and those friends meet in real time ‘tweetups’. Lost or stolen pets can be publicised and sometimes reunited. Yes there are trolls and not everyone who uses Twitter are nice people, but the good outweigh the bad, and it’s easy enough to block them and to warn others to do the same. Twitter is so much more than you can imagine. Twitter is so much more than just a virtual platform.

Update problem with adding photos to post (iPad)

Update: The issue below seems to have been resolved in the latest update of the app (30 Oct).

I use the Twitter app on the iPad on a regular basis, and this app is far better for me than using the PC for both reading and posting tweets. On the iPad Pro (with iOS12), when adding photographs there was a reasonable sized image (up to four per tweet) and the ability to add accessibility text for those who need it.
After this latest update, when adding photographs to post, there is now a very small thumbnail image with a big X (close button) covering it, so impossible to check it’s the correct one before posting, and no option to add accessibility text.
It still seems to work OK on the iPhone after the update; just the iPad version that has issues with photographs. Otherwise, it is a great app.
