Problem Filling Gaps in Home Timeline

Some users have reported a problem today when attempting to fill gaps in the home timeline. It appears that the Twitter API has changed its behavior today, and is no longer returning tweets when they are requested for a specific range of tweet IDs. We’re not yet sure if this was an intentional change to the Twitter API, or if it is a temporary issue.

Assuming the problem is not fixed by Twitter shortly, we’re planning to make a change in the upcoming 2.7 update which will hopefully avoid the issue by using a different technique for requesting tweets when filling timeline gaps.

By the way, the 2.7 update is currently being tested and is looking great. Among the new features is support for uploading Twitter videos, access to recent photos and videos from user profiles, and display of quoted tweets within timelines.

Update (June 15, 2015): Tweetlogix 2.7 is now submitted to Apple and is awaiting App Store review. This update includes a workaround for the issue affecting timeline gap filling. The issue has also been reported to Twitter. You can get a general idea of average App Store review times at http://appreviewtimes.com (currently 11 days for the iOS App Store).

Update (June 18, 2015): Twitter has fixed the API issue that was affecting timeline gap filling. The problem filling gaps should now be resolved in the existing Tweetlogix 2.6.1 version.

Tweetlogix 2.6.1 Available in App Store

Tweetlogix 2.6.1 is available now in the App Store. This is a small update to fix an issue on 64-bit devices verifying Wi-Fi connectivity for Twitter streaming. Thanks to everyone who reported this issue.

You may need to clear your Tweetlogix cache after updating to this version in order to view Twitter animated GIFs and videos in existing cached tweets.

Some users have also asked about support for displaying Twitter animated GIFs. Currently, Twitter has not yet updated their API to enable 3rd party apps to display GIFs. However, Twitter has recently commented in their developer forum that API support for GIFs is coming soon. I’m planning to develop support for displaying GIFs in Tweetlogix as soon as Twitter releases API support for them.

To select a different image service:

Note that yfrog is also currently experiencing server-side upload issues, so you will not want to choose that option either.
