So I downloaded Tweetbot yesterday and I really love it...except there's on problem.

The app starts off with the text being "medium" and to me it looks tacky. The regular Twitter app text seems to be smaller. So after I lowered the text size to small on Tweetbot I now think it's a little too small for me eyes (but looks better [layout wise]) than the medium.

So for those who downloaded Tweetbot...is your text medium sized or small sized?

Tweetbot is awesome, by far the best Twitter app, although I miss the sneakpeak of images that Twittelator Neue gives you.

I have it set to Tiny.

And in Setting what does "Post In Background" mean?

I find myself also caught between medium and small, mostly i've settled on medium. I wish apps would use a adjustable slider for the font size and maybe even different types of fonts to choose. Its a shame to like an app for its features but cant enjoy it if its difficult to read.

I also go back to neue for the image preview, it works perfectly for that. Hopefully these an update soon that corrects some of the other funkyness.

When you hit the "Tweet" button to actually post your tweet, with "post in background" on, the app takes you back to your timeline, and notifies you that the tweet has posted. With it off, the app keeps you on the tweeting page until the tweet fully posts. That's what I know of.

Now that I think about it, it may also allow you to exit the app (background it) and continue to post the tweet, depending on the option setting. Maybe test that if interested.

I have mine on small. When I got the app, My first thought was that the font size (medium default) does not blend well at all with the overall appearance of the app. I think small fits perfectly and easy enough to read (for me at least).

The update to Tweetbot a few weeks ago enabled this feature. To me, that was the last thing missing. It's perfect now. :D
Do you mean the little thumbnail of the attached image, or the little sneakpeak you get of the image below the tweet?
