Lately I’ve been gravitating to Twitter’s official app, especially after Twitter stopped pushing notifications to 3rd party apps, but also because on the official app, when you’re on top of a tweet, VoiceOver tells you how many replies, retweets and other info the tweet has; if you double-tap on the tweet, it takes you directly into the tweet and you can see the replies which with Twitterific I was never able to get this info.
also about the Official Twitter app, when you’re within a follower’s profile, and you want to Create a new tweet, in which you mention the follower, or the person in whose profile you’re in, Twitter automatically autofills the name of the person! Also it autofills the edit field within the Trendy Topics, which Twitterific doesn’t do either.

I use the twitter official app and have no issues with it. I’m able to interact with tweets pretty well.

I prefer Twitterrific. The main reason has to do with when I look at my feed in the morning after being asleep. I will go thru a few tweets and then I get the show more tweets button on the native twitter app. It skips over something like 6 hours worth of tweets. Other than this the native twitter app is pretty good especially since they put the links from the tweets in the actions rodar.

Hi all. Double tap as if answering a call. That starts a new tweet. I think you have to switch it on. well worth it. I miss tweets going to third party aps. I liked when it vibrated and made a sound when posting, ro other behaviors.
