Twitter is a free app that lets you connect with people, express yourself, and discover more about the things you love. Hear about breaking news first. See what your favorite celebs, athletes and public figures are chatting about. Catch a glimpse behind-the-scenes at the Oscars, concerts, sporting events, and more. Then join the conversation: Tweet your own text and photos to your followers — and maybe make a few fans along the way. Even send private messages to friends. All in real time, as big (and little) things happen, from anywhere you happen to be. When something happens in the world, it happens on Twitter. Express yourself with text, photos, emoji, emoticons, GIFs and Vines. Get breaking news, instantly, by following hashtags like #breaking and accounts like @BBCBreaking. Go behind the scenes at exclusive events like the VMAs and the World Cup. Use hashtags (like #puppies) to find more Tweets about topics you love. Start a conversation with people who interest you, including celebrities like Katy Perry, Patrick Stewart and astronaut, Chris Hadfield.

The Windows 10 version is miles better than the old app

Thanks for the big update. It took a while but worth the wait. The app is nearly perfect. Fast, beautiful UI (especially the gorgeous black theme) and almost feature complete. Hopefully to see Polls, notification for quoted tweets (we'd rather have this sooner than later) and other features to be added to the app. Good job guys.

New update keeps freezing

Great when it works, but after this latest update I scroll for about 20 seconds before the app freezes and then crashes 😕

Forever waiting for: ▪ Enable transparent live tile. ▪ Enable trending topic for countries. ▪ Enable delete multiple DM's. ▪ GIF format doesn't show/play. ▪ Make it universal. ▪ New interface. ▪ Periodically the app closes randomly. ▪ Add Moments. ▪ Release Periscope App for Windows Phone. ▪ Enable to manage list (add people, remove people from list, create and delete list). ▪ Enable vote to polls. ▪ Enable full feature setting like web. Update now with this!!! 😠💔

I like dark theme, moments, scaling, gif autoplay. Please add push notifications for user tweets. And animations too.

I guess twitter's lucky I use twitter so much because this app is literally the worst. It's slow, it hasn't been updated in ages, and it periodically likes to uninstall itself, making me try a dozen times the reinstall it about once a week. I hate this app.

Turn off retweets and video, gif players

At the moment the app is good, please I want to be able to turn off retweets, also when I'm listening to music and a video shows up in my tl, my music stops and I have to go to my music app and resume it, that doesn't happen with instagram.

Individual User Notifications in mobile

In the previous version I was able to get individual notifications from users that I had chosen, Can I have that in this new version? or What happened to it?. That was very useful.

Nice job, but...

1. It would be better swipe across menus instead of tap. 2. Can't add the app to Quick status on Lock screen settings. 3. Need transparent live tile. 4. App crashes sometimes if try to reply or tweet. 5. No quick answer option right from action centre.
