No wonder Robird appeared so quickly from nowhere and looked so familiar. Speaks volumes for the quality of Boid. Roll on Boid 2.0 :-)

I would like an option to disable it, it's unnecessary for me.

A little over a year ago, I had been working on Peeper for Twitter, a basic holo Twitter app for Android 4.0. At one point, +Phil Oakley emailed me with some concepts of a Twitter app that he had been working on with a few other people and invited me to be their coder. Peeper was abandoned and I directed my followers towards what became +Boid for Twitter OSP

Two of our members (Mike from Australia and Fede from Italy, both graphic designers) left, and a new one joined as a coder. This left me, +Phil Oakley, +Graham Macphee, and +Joe Simpson as Team Boid. I believe Joe joined after we released our first alpha to Google Play around March of last year.

Due to Twitter's changes which affected most Twitter apps (Falcon, TweetLanes, etc.), Boid was open sourced mid-update before being pushed to Google Play. I find it amazing how far I've come since then, I've gained so much experience with Android development since then, and I've gained quite a bit of fame out of it which I appreciate. I hope I can work for a company like Google someday.

The new update will be coming in the next few days, here's a screen shot of the new composer drafts system. Don't worry, it works on small screens too.   #Boid

Again, this is the major changelog for v0.9: http://boidapp.com/post/28581961008/what-is-coming-in-0-9

Settings category descriptions have been improved, also notice that notifications are under Accounts (click your accounts in the account manager to access notification settings for that account). #Boid

Yet more improvements added to the change log; muting will work better, and you'll be able to enable muting for the mention column and searching. #Boid

Wow. Twitter seems intent on alienating 3rd party client developers. 

Heelo & app.net might just fucking take off after all...

Well, +Israel Lai $50 for a year. So that does sound costly but it depends on your preferences. Some Twitter clients have started porting to App.net so hopefully +Boid for Twitter (Beta) will perhaps consider it too? Or hopefully all the backlash will cause Twitter to reconsider. Hopefully.
