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). ...

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).

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 ...

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

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.

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

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.

As of current version (Version 8.25.1-release.0 on Dec 20, 2019), it is not possible to switch accounts while viewing a tweet on the official Twitter app. The only way to switch account is from the sidebar, and it is currently only accessible from the main screen. Instead, to "retweet from another account", the native workaround is by sending a direct ...

In 2012 it was reported Twitter did upload the address book to their servers. Something changed after that. In case you're wondering if it has in the past you can visit https://twitter.com/settings/contacts_dashboard If you are using Android 6.0 or higher you can disable the contact permissions as a extra precaution. The Twitter app doesn't use your ...

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.
