    Title says it all. Today's update includes fixes for the Twitter issue and issues with swipe gestures being difficult to activate, as well as several other fixes and optimizations. I can confirm that Twitter is fixed! :D

    Help me understand how you missed this thread, on the same topic, on the front page? :confused:

    I didn't miss it. In fact, I've been following that thread and searched before posting just to be sure there were no others that I missed. If you look at the times, that thread was updated announcing the update a few minutes after my post.

    If I were somebody who was not following that thread (which has a vague title, by the way), and didn't use Twitter (how I discovered the update), I wouldn't have known about the update. I don't really see how any harm is done by posting a separate thread putting the information that, I think, many people were waiting for right in front of them without having to dig through a vaguely titled thread that isn't really focused on any specific issue(s).

    P.S. Thanks for the bump!

    You didn't search. I know this because that's EXACTLY how I pulled up that ongoing thread, a thread solely discussing fullscroll. I typed in "fullscroll" in the search text box and the thread popped right up. There are only 3 threads that even mention fullscroll: your duplicate thread, the main thread discussing fullscroll, and some YouTube thread . Had you searched you would have found the thread. It's not that big a deal. Unfortunately duplicate threads happen all the time. Just gets annoying for daily members who would prefer to keep things organized. Hopefully a mod will merge the two threads because you included the link to the changelog which is useful. Thanks for that.

    I searched, found the other FullScroll thread, saw that that thread (which I've been following closely, as mentioned in my earlier post) had not been updated, and figured a more to-the-point post would benefit somebody.

    I don't considerate it a duplicate post, again, because the title of that thread isn't descriptive at all and somebody looking for information on FullScroll being updated would have a much easier time finding the information if they searched for "FullScroll" and a thread titled "FullScroll update fixes Twitter and swipe gesture bugs" popped up. Am I wrong?

    Either way, you're right in saying that it's not a big deal. Just seems to me some people spend more time trying to call people out for things than actually contributing to the community, which is all I was trying to do.

    The point is to cut back on clutter as topics never get purged here.

    Everyone who posts a duplicate thread always has a good excuse. They all boil down to irrelevant rationalization by people who believe what they have to say is so important it deserves its own thread.
