Hi there.

I updated Twitter for iPhone to version 4 and really dont like it. The thing is, its even updated on my Mac, so I cant download the old version (3.5.3 I guess)

My brother has the older version on his computer, but I'm not authorized to use that file unless I use his Apple ID.

Is there a way to install it without using his Apple ID? I tried changing the info plist AppleID string to my ID, but it always gave me a "failed to install" message.

Btw, I'm not jailbroken, so I cant use anything to patch my system files

Help is very much appreciated.

Yeah now would be a great time to try a different client. There are so many out there better than the official twitter app. I personally like Tweetlist

people hate change. :)

i actually like it. clearly they are moving towards providing a more "social" experience then just tweets.

a 3rd party app is your best bet.

I second Tweetbot... best client for iOS right now. And it's only 99 cents now... I see no reason not to give it a try.
