On Tuesday night Twitter released an update to its official iOS app that addresses some bugs, but most notably changes the QuickBar (which had acquired the nickname the DickBar) so that it is pinned to the top of the screen and no longer floats. But third-party apps had been capitalizing on the #dickbar brouhaha, and it remains to be seen if the natives will be placated by the changes enough not to abandon the official app. What free third-party clients have the most to gain?
#Dickbar is making its way onto, well, the actual Dickbar. Amid the confused users asking “What is this Dickbar?” (and thinking they’d like to stop by for a drink) are those reacting with vitriol at the latest addition to Twitter’s iOS apps for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. The bar (officially a “Quick Bar”) displays the latest trending topics (along with Promoted trends). The trending hashtag is named in honor of Twitter CEO Dick Costolo (though the entendre is clearly intended).
