    UPDATE NUMBER 4: Still doesn't work on Xperia X. Exactly the same issues as before the previous 3 updates - won't stay logged in. Won't load any tweets in the main feed - old or new. Won't load any recent activity in my notifications - old or new. Profile is not up to date with my latest activity. Always the same ''Can't retrieve activity, try again later'' error message (along those lines). Full Review

    Since the recent update on my Xperia, i'm constantly getting a message saying cannot retrieve messages. No good!! Was working fine up until the last 2 upgrades. And as of Tuesday 15th August - another update, but the Android Twitter app still doesn't work! And have Twitter done anything about it? Nope!! Full Review

    15/08/17 yet another update, yet another time the problem isn't fixed. The developers have awful customer service, no one ever replies to emails. They need to employ someone who knows how to solve this problem as it's been going on for over a month. Another update, another waste of time as it hasn't corrected any of the issues. App is a complete joke and waste of my phones memory. No customer service, countless people having the same issue and twitter is completely ignoring, appalling. Just installed the latest update 07/08/17, still no better, nothing has changed, still doesn't work. Now not worked for about a month. Clearly the developer has no interest in their users as they don't even acknowledge or respond to anyone's reviews, unlike other developers who go out of their way to respond and correct issues with their app Full Review

    After Android Nougat 7.1.1 update on my Nokia 5, I keep getting the "cannot retrieve tweets" error. Have you tried all the troubleshooting guides to no avail. Desktop, mobile and twitter lite app all work perfectly, the problem only manifests on the official android twitter app. EDIT: it has been almost a month with the app not working on Nokia, Sony, and Motorola with the Android Nougat 7.1.1 update.

    Two things 1. Moments feature is amazing. But I faced trouble in reordering the tweets (using OP2 ) 2. When the phone switches off, the notifications settings change is switches off. The app needs to be reinstalled to get that back On. Full Review

    App no longer works on my Moto Z Force after Android 7.1.1. update. Tried everything.. wiping cache, powering off, and even the drastic action of doing a complete factory hard reset of the phone. Still no love. Keep getting message: "cannot retrieve tweets at this time, please try again later". Anyone have any ideas? Full Review
