Twitter integration with iOS has led to huge sign-up numbers for the social network. Add those new users to the throngs of iPhone owners that were already big Twitter users, and it’s safe to say that there are plenty of Twitter accounts plugged into iPhones.

We’re also willing to bet that a fair chunk of those are using the official Twitter app, and it appears that some of those may be experiencing an odd bug, and one that is rather annoying – users are reporting that they are unable to see their own @replies in the Connect tab of the iOS Twitter app. We’ve seen this first hand, and it is indeed rather odd.

No amount of refreshing, rebooting or force-closing fixes it. Thankfully though, there is one fix that works, and it’s really rather simple…

As Mashable reports, and as our own testing concludes, deleting your Twitter account from your iPhone’s Settings app and then re-adding it seems to give the accompanying Twitter app the jolt it needs. We’re not sure why this happens, and it appears that Twitter itself isn’t entirely sure either, but this quick fix does seem to do the trick.

Interestingly, we haven’t seen this issue crop up with any other Twitter apps, and with Android owners also suffering, it is clear that the issue lies with the app rather than iOS.

If you’ve experienced this problem, do let us know in the comments. We’d be particularly interested to hear if this fix works for you and whether the issue has returned or not. So far we haven’t had the same problem again on the iPhone 4S that suffered the bug late last week, so here’s to hoping it’s gone for good.

We’re not going to hold our breath, though.

  • Same thing happened to me. When I deleted the application and reinstalled it, it worked fine again.

  • It happens to me on Tweetbot. I’ll try re instal

  • Anonymous

    I have a bug where every single mention is listed twice. Even the mentions that were there before the bug started got duplicated. They only show up twice in the “@ connect” tab. The tweets don’t show up twice on profiles or in my feed.

  • Same bug to me.I install and then unistall but not fixed.. I try many times but nothing..Twitter not working on my iphone

  • It did happen to me on my 4s so what i did was logout and login again and it was fine…

  • If you delete the Twitter app from the iPhone and reinstall from the app store it fixes the problem and also keeps all your account info in tact.

  • It happened to Twittelater Neu also. I rest the app but it’s still a little hit or miss.
