Official Twitter App Problems

I'm posting this on the desire board as according to my mate it's a desire only issue, but i'm not sure. Searching the forum for twitter app brings up 1000's of entries.

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?
 
My Twitter for Android has stopped displaying users I follow or who are following me, I get an error when it tried to load or refresh these lists, so I can't see who I'm following in lists and it renders the useful add @username list when you're writing a tweet useless. I've tried signing out and back in, sync on and off, reboots, task killing and it still says "No users found". It has been like this for weeks now and is really annoying. Tweets update fine though.

No.

It's not very good that we have to turn to unofficial Twitter clients to get working versions of the functionality available in the official one. I don't mean any disrespect to the unofficial apps, because there are some very good ones out there, but for my needs I like the official Android app and its presentation. Until it's fixed I have signed out of Twitter for Android and am using Twicca (I like Twicca, but wish you could change it from the black background white/grey text set up to something with a bit of colour).

Mine is still not displaying following, followers, or blocked users where applicable in my profile section or lists and still has a blank insert @ list when writing a tweet. Not good for an official app and it's a shame because it offers slightly more functionality than the official site (these features used to work). Still will not sync my contacts either (has never worked).
