Twitter's API has been down for a day or so. I guess Elon's making some poorly planned changes behind the scenes.

 

Third party clients not working anymore until it's fixed so I installed the official Twitter client.

 

The official app is so bad - "the algorithm" puts tweets all out of order which is why I switched to Talon in the first place.

 

I don't know why it can't just have an option to put all Tweets in sequence.

 

Anyway I hope it's fixed

You can improve it somewhat by making sure the tab at the top is set to "following" and not "for you"

Cool, I see that works for the website. I searched on the app and the same can be achieved by clicking on the "star" icon at the top right

 

That offers an option for "Latest tweets", will see how that works out for me. Thanks for that tip

Elon is probably working out how to monetise the 3rd Party apps and the API!

Ah yes, the app will also eventually give you the tabs too. They seem to be rolling it out slowly. Some people still get the old interface.

 

Man, it's all terrible though. So sad.

From: https://9to5mac.com/2023/01/13/tweetbot-twitter-apps-still-broken-elon-musk-api/

 

Tweetbot, Twitteriffic, and other popular third-party clients for Twitter are still completely broken due to issues with Twitter’s API. Despite growing complaints from Twitter users and developers alike, Elon Musk has remained silent. This is leading some people to speculate that this change is intentional and that Twitter is shutting down third-party clients altogether.

Pretty gutted if this is the end of third party apps.

I don’t post to it or interact with anyone on Twitter but I like using it (Tweetbot) at the end of the day to catch up on everything I follow, without ads, set up the way I like it with my timeline in sync across devices.

The official Twitter app is just a mess.

Looks like it's all over for 3rd party clients

 

From Talon's Twitter feed:

 

"Twitter has clarified their position.

 

From this point on, apps that attempt to recreate the Twitter experience will not be allowed to access Twitter services.

 

Unfortunately, this ultimately means that Talon will cease to work"
