How to make Twitter for Android show tweets in reverse chronological order

Twitter made a horrible mistake years ago, and now they’re beginning to make it right again.

Twitter added the option to “Show me the best Tweets first” a while back, and it jumbled up our feeds and showed us old but popular tweets over the latest and greatest tweets from those we follow — and sometimes from those we didn’t follow.

Twitter is killing its apps for Roku, Android TV and Xbox

Apps will remain for Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, though.

Fun fact: Twitter had apps for Roku, Android TV and Xbox.

Another fun fact: Those apps will no longer work come May 24. While Twitter didn’t explicitly say why, TechCrunch says it had to do with the new European General Data Protection Regulation, which goes into effect May 25 and is the reason all of your apps have been updating and letting  [Read More…]

Twitter finally details new API, screws third-party apps — again

Twitter has finally announced details for it’s new Account Activity API, which replaces the Streaming API third-party clients have relied on up until now — and the news isn’t good.
