  1. If they add more crap it will get to the point where 1 tweet will fill the whole screen.

    Hopefully it will fix the iPhone 5s Touch ID issue when the app is left opened and the phone locks.

    They also made so changes to the icons and typography. Problem : Twitter now uses the iPhone settings (under iOS7). But the fonts are now DAMN TOO SMALL. They should put the option to choose the font size back :(
