Twitterrific update adds muffling based on length/lines along with 280 character support

Twitterrific has updated its iOS and Mac app today with a mix of new features, improvements, and bug fixes. Along with support for 280 characters, The Iconfactory has also added some handy new ways to use muffling based on tweet length or the amount of lines.

Yesterday we saw Tweetbot update its iOS and Mac apps to allow for the new 280 character limit. However, Twitterrific has taken things a step further with its update, giving users the control to hide tweets with its muffle feature based on character length or lines.

Here are the full release notes:


  • Support for sending tweets with up to 280 characters
  • Muffle long tweets:
    • Hide tweets that have more content than you’d like
    • Muffle tweets by character count by simply adding a rule like: > 140
    • If you want to muffle multiline tweets, use a rule like: > 3 lines


  • Replies in discussion timelines are now sorted first by popularity
  • Keyboard now appears at the same time the compose view is appearing
  • Physical keyboard shortcut for opening the selected tweet’s author profile was changed from CMD-U to CMD-Shift-U


  • Fixed a bug causing the target tweet to disappear when viewing replies
  • Fixed an issue displaying names that included unusual characters
  • Fixed position of the media player timestamp on iPhone X
  • Fixed iPhone X layout issues on the Tip Jar and Advanced Features screens
  • Fixed positioning of the in-app notification banner on iPhone X
