Official Twitter App Problems - HTC Desire

Sometimes when I refresh the official twitter app it will only fetch some tweets, not all. The problems happens most often in the morning after my phone has been off (or in aeroplane mode) overnight.

Often it either fetches the last 20 tweets or the last 2-4 hours worth. Hitting refresh again still doesn't bring in the missing tweets so I have to use HTC Peep to get them instead.

I've tried setting it to automatic, 2 hours, 4 hours, manual etc but it still seems to fail to show all tweets if you haven't used the app for several hours.

Is anyone else having this issue or know how to solve it?
I have the same issue. I set it to update every hour, as it seemed to only fetch the last hours worth of tweets. This seemed to work for me. Manually, if I had not refreshed it in 5 or so hours, for example, I would be missing 4 hours worth of tweets as it only pulled the past hours worth.

I've since started using Seesmic, which usually remembers the last tweet I viewed, very handy. It gets the past 50 (or how many you specify) tweets, and at the bottom of the list, it loads more, so you can keep going if you have missed more than the amount you specify.
