I would support an app like this if I actually had a Twitter account. But since I've never had one and never intend to get one, well... Bye.

I would think Piepmatz is a 'killer app' if saved search of my most favorite Twitter places are shown i.e. ”SailfishOS” or ”JollaHQ”. Have my financial support if this feature is included in future releases!

Let's see what can be done. ;)

Still no local instance thread. Did I miss something?

WerkWolf's picture

What exactly do you mean with "local instance thread"?

objectifnul's picture

The "Local timeline" (only toots from the same instance contributors)

This is only for Twitter, not for Mastodon. Probably, you mean Tooter for Sailfish OS. This one is done by another author.
