Some users consider Twitter to be more dynamic than Facebook although these platforms have different goals. My mark is 9/10.

Interface 

Both iTunes and Google Play apps are simple to get on your smartphone or tablet PC. The app has been translated into different languages. The main menu includes Profile, Highlights, Lists, Connect, Night Mode, Settings, and Help. After a sign-up, you can join conversations, read the news and write Tweets. You can make your Tweets private or public, but cannot edit them after publishing. A star next to posts lets to make it favourite and then view all your Favorite topics by clicking a corresponding link under Stats on the right side. If you want to comment on a post, you can reply publicly or send a Direct Text to an author. Don’t forget to start with “@” when you write a reply to a user.

You can also follow any other users and see their posts in the timeline. To find friends, click Find & Invite box at the top of the screen. Tweet stream has greatly improved, too. You never miss a single Tweet by clicking “Load more Tweets” box. My mark is 10/10.

Performance and Usability


If you have something to say about this app and make own review – write me.

Most users feel satisfied with the app’s latest version although it has some things to improve. Some people complain about being unable to log in or save their Tweets. Sometimes images in a post appear out of order, or timeline scrolls back automatically. Users are also pleased with the absence of phone verification. My mark is 9/10.

Cross-platform Use

Twitter app is compatible with the most modern devices working on iOS, Windows, and Android. My mark is 10/10.

Verdict

Twitter is a nice tool that supports freedom of speech and contains breaking news and live videos about different spheres of the world. Communicate with your friends through 140-character messages, watch live stream video, see people’s direct reaction to them, and receiver Tweets from celebrities and people you admire. Twitter has lots of interesting news to discover for everyone. It constantly updates to fix bugs and incorrect things offering the most comprehensive experience.
