Tweetbot update brings Twitter Photos support


Awesome awesome awesome. Added all the features I've been waiting for. Mainly old style RT's and custom image API support. I can be patient for native push support as I understand they are a very small team working hard on it. Boxcar suffices for now.

I like how they incorporated old-style RTs, but at the same time dislike how they still insert a colon after the person's username who you RT. It's pointless.

Nice update. Still waiting for push notifications and location fix, but even without that it is the best twitter client

make sure you are using the locations right. they have the city level/twitter places locations set by default you have to switch to coordinates if you want it to be more accurate than that. After it finds your location click on it and you can change it to use Coordinates instead.

Same here. But now that quoting tweets gives the RT feature, looks like I'm staying with tweetbot now.

Unless I'm missing something here it seems that they have added support to view Twitter photos but not an option to use Twitter's new photo service as an upload destination when you post pictures…?!

Like the update.. I saw that filters and/or mute capabilities were on the devs list of considerations. I still hope it is. It's the only reason why I flip back to Twitterlator at times...that being said...LUV this app!
