A major update to Twitterrific is now available in the iOS App Store that includes a host of widely requested features. The biggest improvement in Twitterrific 5.10 is the ability to view and manage your list of muffled usernames, URLs and hashtags. Users can also now add keywords to the terms that can be filtered via the new Muffles sidebar item. In addition, any muffled term can instantly be turned into a full-level mute by swiping left on the item in the list and selecting “Mute”. This completely hides the term from view in the timeline until it is un-muted or muffled. Thanks to the new Muffling interface, Twitterrific users now have the best of both worlds, they can choose to muffle certain items as well as mute others they may not wish to see at all. Muffling and muting also works when viewing Twitter searches, which sets it apart from other 3rd party Twitter clients.

Another highly requested feature that makes its debut in 5.10 is support for draft tweets. Once you compose a new tweet, if you decide not to post it, you now have the option to save the text as a draft when you close the compose view.


Drafts are account based and synced across all of your iOS devices running Twitterrific via iCloud. There are two ways to insert drafts into the compose field – Tap the drafts icon to open the list of pre-composed tweets and then select the draft you want to use. Next you can either tap the Copy Drafts icon to both copy it to the clipboard and insert it into the compose field, or you can simply insert it directly by tapping the Insert Draft icon. Selecting Insert moves it from the current list of drafts into compose, effectively deleting it in the process.

But that’s not all. Twitterrific also now supports an improved sidebar user interface, better push notifications, ability to use smart quotes, URL’s displayed above iOS 8 share sheets, important bug fixes and more. Be sure to visit the Twitterrific version history page for a complete list of what’s new in this release.

Twitterrific 5.10 is a free update and is available now in the App Store. Be sure to follow Twitterrific on Twitter for the latest news on releases as well as tips, tricks & latest issues.
