Twitter for iPhone updated, #dickbar still mandatory but slightly less intrusive

Twitter for iPhone has been updated so that the new #dickbar Quick Bar does not overlap tweets in your timeline. Twitter introduced this trending bar last week and users were immediately outraged by its intrusive behavior and the fact that it cannot be disabled. This update still does not allow the user to disable the Quick Bar, but at least it's not quite as intrusive.

Here's everything this update has to offer:

  • Fixes crashing some users have been seeing on launch and with location services
  • Updated Quick Bar default behavior to not overlap tweets in timeline
  • Security fixes
  • Improved performance for users with many accounts

After last week's update, did you switch Twitter clients because of the Quick Bar? If so, is this improvement enough to bring you back? Sound off in the comments below!
