I love this on my Kindle Fire. Anytime I tried just going onto the internet and using it, it would always shut me out or wouldn't load correctly. With this however, it's fast, and reliable. I get my updates quickly, and am able to post without a problem.

An excellent app for quickly checking your tweets. I use this app on a daily basis and haven't had any trouble with it at all. Love the official Twitter app, nothing beats it.

Update 1/22/15.

I was fed up of not being able to use Twitter while outside of home since I use my Kindle a lot more than my android phone with a tiny screen. Checking back on the Amazon Appstore, I wondered if they had fixed the issues by now since it's been a few months. I was WRONG. Latest feedback will vouch.

Anyway, I decided to search the internet for the latest apk file for Twitter. I then noticed that it was just recently updated on the 20th. It's also 6 VERSIONS AHEAD OF WHAT IS HERE ON THE APPSTORE. Bottomline: Ditch this one here and just install the apk file. It's a whole lot more stable than this piece of crap. Up vote this so people could see. Have a great day!

----------

I had the previous version running just fine. When I had to free up some space on my Kindle Fire 2nd gen, I uninstalled Twitter for a bit then reinstalled it back. At first I was happy that it got updated, with the interface somewhat cleaner to look at in my opinion as well as finally being able to see emojis but it unexpectedly crashed just seconds after logging in. Tried uninstalling then reinstalling but to no avail. Not cool, Twitter.

The Amazon Appstore definitely is horrible.

When twitter for android first came out I was comparing it to tweetie on the iphone. The android app failed in almost every way possible. It was sluggish, low on features and had a horrible interface. Now it has been updated to be more like the twitter app on the iphone. It has a much improved interface, never lags, and has a boatload of features that iOS users get. Thanks for the update!

Continues to be the obvious choice for tweeting on the kindle fire. Could use some extra polish but satisfies all my basic twitter needs.
