Revamped: The official Twitter mobile site
But the latter of these options currently lacks class. Last updated in February, the app currently has a user-agent issue that serves Ubuntu Phone users with an older, bare-bones Twitter mobile UI.
Twitter recently revamped its mobile website to better match the look of its native mobile apps for Android and iOS.
But Ubuntu users needn’t miss out.
A new unofficial Twitter web-app brings the super-white new-look Twitter mobile experience to Ubuntu Phone, replete with all the usual system integration like push notifications and content hub sharing.
Mateo Salta, the app’s author, bills his creation thusly: “Unofficial Twitter webapp using Orga’s webapp container, gives the new twitter web design. Use the twitter interface you are used to, gives access to the new twitter website complete with pictures, gif’s, link previews, ect”(sic).
Oliver Grawert’s alternative web-app container is used by a number of popular Ubuntu Touch web-apps, including the semi-unofficial OMG! Ubuntu! web app n’ (sadly broken) scope bundle created by Ubuntu Phone user Mitchell Reese.
Salta maintains a number of different projects for the Ubuntu Touch platform, including a Command Line Scope and RSS Reader Scope.
This unofficial Twitter app will auth through Ubuntu Online Accounts and can be used alongside the Canonical Twitter web-app without issue.
If you’re an avid Tweeter and have an Ubuntu Touch device do give it a try and let us know what you think of it.
