Nighthawk for Twitter

Team Nighthawk
Nighthawk is a remarkably powerful and personal Twitter app. It’s built from the ground up with speed, empathy, and authenticity in mind.

Your timeline should reflect what you care about, not the opaque agenda of a black-box algorithm. Nighthawk displays tweets in the timeline reverse-chronologically, the way nature intended. 

You’re bound to come across some tweets that might rub you the wrong way, which is why Nighthawk provides tons of human-curated filters. Looking to take a break from election chatter? Add the U.S. Politics Smart Filter. Don't care about K-pop? Add the K-pop Smart Filter.

At Team Nighthawk, we're deeply committed to iOS and the Apple ecosystem, so Nighthawk is designed to take advantage of tons of iOS-only features and experiences. We've got rich link previews, haptics, custom home screen icons, the whole nine. And since Nighthawk is paid upfront, we provide all these features without showing you ads or selling your personal information.

- Smart Filters help silence whole topics with just a tap
- The Close Friends timeline elevates the people you care about from the rest of your timeline
- 15+ gorgeous home screen icons and nit-picky preference for the control freaks in all of us
- Wicked fast performance on all devices

What's new in version 2020.1
Thanks for all your feedback! We're honored to have such an engaged community of users.

Nighthawk 2020.1 adds a safety-first COVID Smart Filter that tries to let through important local safety information while also letting you make the conscious decision to engage with the flood of more general news updates only when you're ready.

We've also integrated tons of your feedback on big issues like accessibility, what you find difficult or frustrating about the app, and what you'd like to see changed. Some of these features are available now, and some are coming in the next few days and weeks, so stay tuned!

Some other additions:
- New visual touches for trackpad users on iPad
- Better support for dynamic type (more flexibility for how you can display tweets is coming soon!)
- Adjustments to the US Politics algorithm to reflect the coming general election

Fixes and improvements:
- Images now load faster on LTE and 3G connections
- Retweet and "..." buttons on iPad are more reliable
- Background fetching will require less battery and be better reflected in your notifications screen
- Speaking of that notifications screen, we've made improvements to how it's sorted
- The plus button on Smart Filter and Close Friends selection screens should work more reliably
- We've sped up the first launch experience. Loading and analyzing your data is an important part of what makes Nighthawk special, so we want to do that right off, but we don't want to keep you waiting quite so long.
