I use the standard Twitter app. AppStories gave a favorable review of “Spring for Twitter” on their podcast S1 E305 “A Close-Up Look at Anybox and Spring”. Sounds interesting. Costs 11.99 USD. Has a lite version to try. You can look for it in the App Store. Also works on Mac. I may give it a try.
I really like Twitterrific Muffle feature. Unlike Mute which made the tweet disappeared completely, Muffle collapses the tweet, so only the name of the poster is shown. You tap on it and the tweet expanded. So, you could Muffle all retweets and when you want to read selected retweets, just tap on them. It’s the one feature that made Twitterrific different from all others.
I’m a Tweetbot user. It allows me to view chronologically and syncs between my devices.
I remembered there was a thread about using Twitter and filtering crap out. I can’t remember where the thread is now but I do remember the core message.
Don’t follow people, just add them to a Twitter list and make it private. I have a list for Mac-centric accounts and another list for Productivity people I follow.
I couldn’t stand the official Twitter app’s insistence of inserting ads/promotions, and possible accounts to follow (because someone else I followed also follows other unrelated accounts) into the main Timeline. The private lists are curated and nothing else shows up. There’s no ads or Elon Musk tweets. I didn’t like the idea of checking my Timeline and an ad pops up in every 5th tweet which destroys the flow when I’m trying to follow certain topics.
