Apparently, the UI only applies to web browser use and not to mobile apps. Of course there were criticisms in various forums that only people over 60 use a computer to access Twitter these days. Hey! Sometimes this summer chicken uses a computer to read Tweets, perform searches and add interesting Tweeters to my lists. My smart phone and iPad apps don’t provide clear action buttons for those options. Either that or I can’t see them without my reading glasses ;o^ or suffer from fat finger typing syndrome.
