OK, I figured out what the app is asking. It's asking to create an account in the Settings > Accounts section on my Android device. This enables other applications, including stock applications and user-installed applications, to find out that I have a Twitter account and possibly use it to post to Twitter (provided I give consent to such apps to do so). ...

In the Twitter app... Tap the Overflow menu (three vertical dots) and choose "Settings" Tap the account (your username, not general) you want to change Under "Notification Indicators" tap "Ringtone" Choose the Ringtone you want to use for Twitter notifications for this account For more recent versions of Twitter, this something controlled at the OS level. ...

Your problem touches a feature of Android that sets it apart from other mobile OSes and is a very powerful one (see below): That's all about intents, activities and the back stack that contains your path of visited activities in order for each app. Basically an activity is a single GUI fullscreen window you see, for example the main activity when you ...

I was concerned about this as well and decided to decompile the app to find out what it's doing. Twitter receives SMS messages via a BroadcastReceiver in com.twitter.applib.client.SmsReceiver. Here is what the code looks like after decompiling it to Java with dex2jar and jd-gui. public class SmsReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver { private void a(Context ...

As Federico Perez pointed out in his comment on the question, the problem was caused by moving the app to the SD card. I moved the app back to internal memory and it worked for me as well (so thanks to Federico for pointing out).

Some Twitter apps allow you to "retweet with comment" or "quote & reply" in which case you can remove the original username before retweeting. If your friend chose to do that before retweeting, you won't be able to see the original username. TweetCaster Pro has the "retweet with comment" option.

There don't seem to be any widgets that let you monitor twitter for certain keywords, but here's a workaround that might do the trick. Try an application like Meta widget. It can turn any webpage to a widget.

It's unlikely that any Twitter app offers a way to do this. In general, intents are used to start an action that requires user interaction to complete, or at the very least ask you for confirmation. If an app offered a way to send a tweet automatically via an intent, it would also have to require the app sending the intent (Llama in this case) to have a ...

There are 2 possible situations here, or both: System apps cannot be moved to SD due to being 'protected' system apps. Apps that have widgets cannot be moved to SD as it breaks the widget and many devs will take out the option to move to SD.

That button is for replying to a tweet

In Tweetdeck, each column has separate notification and update settings. Tap the menu key, then Column Settings. Switch notify off, and set your desired update interval, or move the slider all the way to the right to select "Manual".

Yes, there are lots of apps like Image Shrink Lite Resize Lite Share Image and many others, just search the market Instead of sharing to Twitter, just share to these apps, choose from a list of predefined sizes, and reshare to Twitter. You can do this from any apps that can share images to any apps that can receive shared images.

Follow them, then go to their profile and star them (it's next to the follow button). You'll now get notifications whenever they tweet.

An app like Permissions can tell you the meaning of the different types of permissions. For receive text messages (SMS): Allows the app to receive and process SMS messages. This means the app could monitor or delete messages sent to your device without showing them to you.

The play.google.com link you post is the correct form for linking to an app, and it's the documented solution recommended by Google.

It turns out that the Twitter app uses data stored at /sdcard/Android/data/com.twitter.android. I deleted that directory and reinstalled the app and everything works now.

Go Settings/Apps/Twitter Uncheck "Show Notifications" under the "Force Stop" button.

Sorry, the Twitter widget is gone. The Twitter widget was removed from service in the newer versions since release 6.8.0. See the report dated July 26, 2015 from Android Police. It is possible the version you are maintaining on the earlier OS was never updated (or can't be) to a widget-less version. My Samsung S8 carries the latest Twitter App and no ...

This is what twitter is supposed to do, it's not a bug, however if you want to try some other twitter clients here are some (Paid and Free) Talon for Twitter - Paid Carbon for Twitter - Free Plume for Twitter - Free

As far as I have been able to tell, there is no official information on what this permission is for. I have seen this in another app in the last little while. The Google Hangouts app recently gained the SMS permission and uses it (in addition to displaying your phone's SMS messages in the app) to process phone number confirmation texts: the Hangouts app ...

You could probably use On {x} for this. You should be able to configure it so that it sends a tweet the first time you unlock your phone each day. I've not used it much myself though so can't tell you exactly how. Another possible option would be using Tasker.

The Twitter app registers an intent filter for http and https URLs to twitter.com, to tell Android it can open those URLs itself. That's why you get the first chooser (the list of possible apps). However, it seems that the Twitter app can't actually understand those "redirect" links, so it asks for a web browser to handle the URL. That's why you get the ...

Since the anwer seems to be: "no there isn't", my workaround was to use an RSS-reader widget, and the following RSS URL: search.twitter.com/search.rss?q=keyword. I think its strange I have to go through such hoops, since Twitter provides a HTML-widget for exactly this purpose. I was expecting at least one Android app to mimic this functionality.

Both Facebook and Twitter contact sync stopped doing anything useful sometime recently (ICS?). They no longer provide a meaningful between your phone contacts and the actions provided by those clients. I think this has to do with changes to the Android API that for whatever reason these companies have not adapted to. There is a stop-gap solution for ...

Take a backup of the same Twitter client on your phone, with a known handle and email, and then search the resulting files (or backup image) for the know handle and email. Then look in the same place on the original image/files.

Not sure if this helps, but Slices for Twitter will let you tap on a link to open it up in the built-in web browser, then tap on the share button to bring up the list of targets for URLs, including Pocket. You don't have to wait for the page to finish loading before sharing the link to Pocket, which allows this process to be fairly quick. That's 3 total ...

This seems like a bug in one of the apps you use. Best you can do is report it to their developers through the Play store.

A number of 3rd-party "social" apps have this feature. Personally I use TweetDeck. When Internet connection is not available, it will save my tweet, and throw a notification saying that it will be sent when connectivity is re-established.

It's probably the Social Networking Service (SNS) or a similar application, rather than a Twitter-specific app. I have this service on my Samsung phone and there's a widget that can display social networking posts on the home screen. You can manage it via Settings -> Accounts and sync, as Al said.

Yes, it is likely to be the problem. I suppose it's a hack of yours if these apps are on SD rather than internal memory. As the Android SDK mentions1, applications that use Service, AccountManager and Widget shoudl not be installed on SD card. The Facebook app has an AccountManager, a widget and a Service.
