    Not sure if anybody else has noticed these few things that I thought should have been included in the app, however who knows, it might be released in a later version..

    What would you change? Or hope to see in another update?

    I really wish they would support all Android devices. My Cliq XT is my daily phone, and I would love to have the official Twitter app on it. Thankfully I've got an N1, and was able to use it.

    Multi accounts, for me, isn't a big issue, but for others it may be.

    It would also be great if it would allow us to change profile picture. Not a big issue, but definitely convenient.

    The UI is very clean and polished.

    Overall it is a great app.

    I don't see a way to see my followers or who I'm following.

    I was literally about to post something about that. I can't either.

    Hit 'My profile' then hit the birdie above your photo there are options then to see who you are following and who is following you.

    Filtering away of tweets based on contents and/or source.

    One thing that I didn't know that the official Twitter app does is that it automatically enables the option to have your location posted whenever you use the app.

    I had no idea that it did this, and probably wouldn't have know if I hadn't been listening to the AndroidGuys podcast last night.

    Anyway, you can disable it, but I think it should've given users the option to enable it or not when first opening the app.

    I can't figure out how to disable it. Where do you find that setting?

    When you go to compose a tweet there's a little slider bar in the right hand corner.

    It is hard to see because the font is small, but as jwmacdon1231 said its right above where you would type your tweet.

    I'm still baffled as to where the setting to permanently disable it is... dont really think it exists yet. Has anyone else found it?

    You should only have to change it once, and it should be permanently disabled.

    You can change your profile picture, go to My Profile and click menu and it should be there... at least that's where it is on my eris.
