TwitterStorms and Custom Timelines

The latest and greatest versions of Tweetings for both Android and iPhone contain a powerful improvement to TwitterStorm. What is a TwitterStorm Tweetings has long contained a powerful feature allowing you to split Tweets beyond the 140 character limit into multiple Tweets. This must be done at the time of posting. This feature used to have (part 1), (part 2), etc appended to the end of each Tweet. Recently many people have been using a new format called TwitterStorm which prefixes each split Tweet with the number e.g. 1/, 2/, etc. We’ve also supported this format for split Tweets What’s new?

With mute filters you can pick a user, a keyword/phrase or even an entire app to block from showing on your timeline. There are a number of powerful features allowing these mute filters to expire automatically and on Tweetings for iPhone you can even use regular expression filters. When you add user mutes we also sync them to Twitter directly so that if you use the Twitter website you have the same user’s muted, and vice versa, if you mute on the Twitter website they will be muted in Tweetings. The problem with mute filters is they totally remove those Tweets from your timeline. Enter muffling… Muffles Timeline muffles are a new feature for Tweetings for Android and iOS (at the time of writing this…Keep Reading
