Twitter Deploys Fix for Disappearing Tweets on iOS, Says Tweets Should Now “Stay In Place” While Scrolling

Twitter announced that it updated its iOS app with a fix for an annoying bug that would cause users’ tweets to disappear while trying to read them on the app. The issue, which affected users of the microblogging service, was first resolved on the Twitter web service on November 15. Now, iPhone and iPad users who update their Twitter app will be able to pause while scrolling to read a tweet, while it stays in place. on their timeline.

After the company rolled out a patch for the web version of Twiter on November 15, the issue has now been resolved on the Twitter app for iPhone and iPad.

Twitter has yet to reveal when it will provide a solution to the problem of the disappearance of tweets on Android smartphones and tablets. Earlier this month, Twitter said that users could choose when to see new tweets on their timeline by tapping the tweet counter bar at the top of the timeline.
