    So this is an issue that I've been experiencing for the last couple of years, throughout several different incarnations of iOS and several different iPhones.

    Most of the time, the official Twitter iOS app works perfectly for me. However, one out of every ten or fifteen times I open the app, it seems to get hung up when it tries to refresh. The Network Activity Indicator icon in the iPhone status bar just spins endlessly and no new content shows up. Once I force quit the app and open it again, it magically works perfectly once more.

    Being that I've had this problem for such a long time, and it doesn't seem to be related to the iOS or physical iPhone, I figured that it was just a common problem that exists within the app. But the more I ask around, nobody else seems to experience this.

    Is it just me, or are others seeing this as well? It's not a huge deal...when the app stalls out I simply force quit and reopen it. However, 1 out of 15 times is actually pretty frequent (and I'm constantly using the Twitter app) and if anyone out there has any idea how to prevent this from happening, I'd love to hear your suggestions.

    Yes, happens to me as well. I always have to kill the app and/or turn on/off airplane mode. Only then it loads the timeline again.

    Happens almost as frequent as you mentioned. Don't know why, pretty annoying.

    They are aware of the issue and are trying to get it resolved. They believe there are multiple causes of this issue, and squashing all is difficult. But they are working on it.

    Thanks for that.

    What's the source of that information?
