It s expensive for developers because Twitter charges them for keys to access the site, which means developers tend to pass that charge over to you, and then revoke access when you get too popular.

Open it up and you ll find an interface similar to the web site, with tabs on the bottom for your notifications, moments, DMs, and your profile tab.

For example, the bottom tab bar has two buttons on the right that you can swap out for whatever function you want: activity which includes mentions, replies, favorites, and new follower information , search, profile, likes, mute filters, or lists.

When you do so, any tweet that contains those things will not show up in your feed.

If you do mute something, Tweetbot s also smart enough to still show you replies that might mention those things, so you re not totally cut off from the world.

If you only manage one account, don t mind seeing a bunch of extra garbage like ads and obnoxious hashtags, and it doesn t bother you when Twitter adds some half-baked new idea to the app every week, then the official Twitter app is all you need.
