5.0 out of 5 stars Great December 13, 2012

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Was okay and is now amazing March 24, 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love It!!! November 26, 2012

In the beginning, I had my doubts on Twitter. But really, it's amazing! For those of you that cant gt updates, too bad so sad. Because when I got it, the twitter symbol was still the old one. It updated by itself, one day! So get it!

3.0 out of 5 stars almost perfect September 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
VERY pleased with the app. Performs much better than most third party apps AND the twitter sites (both mobile and full). Has some issues with connectivity at times and also shows trouble dealing with multiple accounts, sometimes tweeting to the wrong one. Biggest flaw is that the app is HUGE. An option to move to SD would be phenomenal.
