It was good while it lasted

Tweetbot has been a fantastic client for Twitter, and I've never experienced any glitches. Its GUI is intuitive and clean, and importantly lacks the ads that Twitter's app shows. However, Twitter has been ending support for various APIs that make third party apps like Tweetbot possible and useful. As a result and through no fault of the developers of Tweetbot, Tweetbot's usefulness and features are in decline. They have had to recently end features such as user statistics because that info is no longer being pushed by Twitter to third parties. It's a shame, and while the app still functions flawlessly, the increasing stripping of features is becoming an annoyance. It's not Tweetbot's fault, but it does mean that my otherwise heartfelt recommendation for the app has to be made with the important caveat that third party twitter clients are no longer really supported by Twitter and thus Tweetbot is not as useful as it should be. My experience with the app has been excellent otherwise, but I suspect that in the future Tweetbot might not really function properly at all if Twitter keeps scrapping support for their APIs. It's at that point that I will probably stop using Twitter though.

5.0 update is awesome

Don’t write reviews often, but just wanted to express my liking of the 5.0 update. Appreciate haptic feedback and also oled display support in dark mode. I always like a new refresh of things and appreciate change, so the updated profile view is nice and the iconography is simple but still easy to follow after the update. I like the “follows you” tag when swiping through to a tweet from someone. Also *love* video autoplay. Something I did like from the standard Twitter app.

Couple pieces of feedback just for change, the startup of the app is still white, so it’s a bit jarring at night, and hope you change that to reflect dark mode options. And also, swiping through to a tweet, if someone has a verified badge, it doesn’t show in that swipe through view. Can be a bit confusing. But other than that, loving the update, and thank you for still supporting as much as possible even after Twitter removed support for api’s and haven’t added others like polls. I still prefer to use TweetBot over the standard app for timeline convenience especially.

Now, always, and forever the best

Social media apps are generally made for the purpose of hooking their users, pulling them into a forever loop of stats and notifications. Tweetbot has always been good for getting out of that loop, with an interface that deemphasizes numbers and puts the things that actually matter in the forefront. Due to meddling from Twitter, they've had to remove a few features such as notifications for likes and retweets, and reply and message notifications have gotten slower. They've removed the page showing which tweets of yours are popular.

That's sad for the devs who have to compete with the main app, but I turned off those features years ago. What's left is an experience full of what you want to use twitter for in the first place, without annoying things that you don't want. It's a social media app that you only pick up when you want it. There's no reason to use anything else.

A twitter without tweetbot is not worth using. If twitter turns off support for apps like this I will leave the service entirely.
