I use the lite version. I've managed to make it very smooth by tweaking the underlying Chrome browser, and Android system. But it is consistently manifesting a flaw: although I've set it to receive an SMS message in a 2-factor authentication process, I never get it. I use a backup code I have saved beforehand, which could be troublesome as I write it down and don't carry it around. Please fix this. Thanks.

Twitter lite is so bad, it uses the browser to piggy back off which means you're running a shortcut with a mask, so 2 apps, it's supposed to be lite data wise but those features are just annoying, like every image is blurred with the words tap to load image... On every single thing... Most posts have a visual element so it's just pointless... On top of it all it doesn't function correctly, it's forever restarting and reloading itself, the app always crashes if you type a tweet that's shared!

I think the lite version is very good. But there is still some area that need to be fix. First, when i push the menu button on the top left corner, the menu show up kinda slow, laggy. Then the second one is, when i scroll down someone's tweet quite long, then i push and see the tweet, but after push the back button, the position is back to the first tweet. I hope u can fix this. If the problem fix, it will be awesome.
