Nighthawk for Twitter

Team Nighthawk
Nighthawk is a different kind of Twitter app, designed to pick up where Twitter's own app might’ve let you down.

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 2020.4.2
This update fixes an issue that prevented some users from enabling Smart Filters or following/unfollowing others.


Thanks for the positive response so far! We've been overwhelmed by the support from new and existing users during the iOS 14 launch.

This build adds fixes to improve the speed of the current Vanity widget and paves the way for coming widgets and a few other cool surprises.

It's hard to believe, but it's been more than a year since Nighthawk's first public betas, and we've learned a lot about your needs and our place in users' daily lives since then.

We've doubled down the things that make Nighthawk unique over the past year, and we'll continue doing so. This release is all about getting you up to date with features just for iOS 14. We're launching our first widget, which we jokingly call the "Vanity" widget, today, and we've got many more widgets and Shortcuts actions on their way.

In the background, we've also made some big changes with iOS 14 features. We now leverage far more sophisticated and precise machine learning tools in Smart Filters, and the Smart Filter engine has expanded to learn from the general chatter on your own personal timeline, too, so they should get better each time you check the app.

We have a lot more coming in the future, including tons of long-awaited improvements, and we can't wait to share it all with you over the next few weeks.
