∞ Dwight Silverman on Twitter for iPhone

Sometimes an app gets updated, and despite the developers best intentions (at least we hope), it goes terribly wrong. That’s what happened with the latest Twitter for iPhone release. With the addition of the QuickBar, Twitter for iPhone lost a lot of users with one app update and caused a weekend of hatred.

That is, until version 3.3 was released last week. Changes in this version have users howling, particularly a new feature called the QuickBar, a black bar across the top of your timeline showing one of the current trending topics. The bar is semi-translucent, and sits on top of updates. In some cases, it may show a sponsored topic, which means you’re looking at an ad.
