An updated version of the open-source desktop Twitter client Corebird is available for download.
Twitter holds that the new so-called “expanded tweets” do not include media attachments (photos, GIFs, videos, and polls) when measuring the 140-character limit. It also says mentions a plan to exclude usernames in replies from the character count as well. However, there isn’t any announcement on when such changes will be actualized.
This Corebird update fixes a problem with malformed media URL among other bugs, some of which include:
- Fix muted and/or blocked tweets still showing up in timelines
- Fix accounts not getting saved when first created
- Fix retweets of the authenticating user not getting their correct seen status
- Fix profiles descriptions containing ampersand characters and links
- Fix profile banner fade-in transition
- Fix doubly-escaped ampersands in link tooltips
- Fix missing underlines in @screen_names in the profile popover
