How to enable Tweetbot 3 streaming over 3G/LTE

Resized Twitter Stream 3G LTE

One of the main reasons why I could never see myself switching from Tweetbot 3 to the official Twitter app has to do with streaming. More specifically, Tweetbot allows you to have real-time streaming timeline updates, while the official Twitter app does not.

But even Tweetbot’s streaming has limitations. For example, you can’t stream your timeline while on LTE/3G, as it only works with Wi-Fi.

Tweetbot 3 Stream 3G/LTE is a brand new jailbreak tweak that allows you to use Tweetbot’s streaming timeline while on a cellular connection. Have a look inside for a few more details about this handy tweak.

Once you open Tweetbot, you’ll notice that streaming is enabled at the top of your timeline when connected to cellular. In order to disable cellular streaming, you can either turn streaming off altogether via Tweetbot’s preferences, or just uninstall the tweak.
