Get the old iOS twitter back

If you’re anything like me, as soon as you heard there was a shiny new iOS twitter app, you rushed off to update… to the mess that is HTML Twitter 5.0.

You’re going to want to revert back to Twitter 4.0, and here’s how to do that:

  1. Delete the app from all your iOS devices.. make sure you don’t sync. (for Windows users, if you have synced you’ll find the old version in trash. Simply restore the file, delete the updated iTunes version with the restored file. Mac users, you’re out of luck)
  2. Connect your iOS device and let iTunes go through its normal syncing process
  3. iTunes should see that you no longer have the twitter app installed and will uncheck it from your synced apps list. Recheck iTunes and sync again.
  4. Boom, welcome back to old twitter.

Shout if you have problems.
