    What Twitter is clearly doing is going for their own look, which is fine with Windows UI design principles (The user interface formerly known as Metro) as long as other considerations like navigation patterns and chrome reduction of visual element are still being followed. It's visually pretty much Twitter.com with a Windows Phone flavor.

    There are still some curious choices so I decided to mess with the UI a little bit (a bit off topic I know but I kinda like the results):

    Changes:

    - Top header size shrunk to a more standard size, the original one is a little imposing.
    - Top header icons aligned to the grid
    - Changed the name font to pop up little more from the rest of the text (I'm personally looking at the names when scrolling/browsing the tweets, this helps me to see better)
    - Changed the text spacing to more closer (original one has the tweets in nice glance-sized bits, but I think it's currently a bit overkill)
    - Got rid of that very redundant bird icon

    You know like on iOS and Android you can try to drag from the top of the list to go higher up the list and it brings up a "Drag to refresh" then "Release to refresh". We have that too, in Metro styling! Now this app looks ace!

    Well I've read through this thread and seen no complaints so it must be me alone. Once I start using this app my phone gets hot.

    Not warm people, hot! I know the difference. And you know what accompanies the heat. Yup, you guessed it. Battery drain.

    Going to reinstall and hope it fixes it.

    On the positive side, the app IS beautiful.

    Yesterday I downloaded the Twitter app, didn't like it much so I uninstalled it. Today, after reading so many positive posts about it, I decided to give it another shot. When I DL'ed it I got the old Twitter app, the one with the dark theme....

    Uh, did they pull the new version? I didn't get the update. I am still on the old one (which I like) and can't find the update. Weird.

    WP8 on Lumia 920. I do tend to get lagged updates compared to some others. I am in DFW area in Texas.

    WTF! And they have removed the Black Theme, what is with phone/app/every technologi thingy with the bright colours and white themes, hurt my eyes in a dark room. They can not call it a update when they remove something that is not a bug, that's a downgrade ;)

    This is very strange, indeed. My wife & I own basically the same phone (she has the 8 gig HTC 8X, I have the 16 gig HTC 8X). She and I both updated yesterday. She was notified of another update today, and installed it, which rolled her back to the old version. I haven't been notified of any "updates" since I installed the new version yesterday. Her Marketplace shows the old version as the current version; my Marketplace shows the new version.

    Something really weird is going on with this app.

    Hmm
    same market place region for you and your wife right? (might seem like a silly Q but just checking)

    in the aus marketplace the web store.. shows 2.0 as the latest version.. my phone shows it as 1.5
    even installing through web store gives me 1.5

    Edit:
    Changed phones region to US .. accessed US market and updated it to v2.0 again
    safe to say i wont be accepting any twitter updates any time soon :p

    What a really odd situation, I'm with you Hamzie11, I'm not touching any twitter updates in the near future. Unrelated - anyone in Aus got 7.8? All quiet on the subject here in nz

    Yeah, we're both set to "United States" for our Country/Region. We're both on the same network (same family plan), and bought our phones at the same time.
