Just a quick update to let you all know that the awesome Boxcar push-notification app now supports TweetAgora! So for all of you who were looking for push notifications, just download Boxcar and set TweetAgora as your Twitter client (you may need to refresh your Twitter list within Boxcar to see TweetAgora).
TweetAgora v2.1 has just been approved & released on the App Store, and frankly we’re ecstatic about it! Here’s a rundown of all the cool new stuff it brings:
• Improved UI: Less middling-brown, more dark-leather / Louis Vuitton
• Share Agoras with your followers: Search for the #SharedAgora hashtag to find shared Agoras (requires TweetAgora v2.1)
• Gap detection in Agoras: “Load More Tweets” button when there are timeline gaps
• Configurable timeline swipe actions: Currently, swiping left on a tweet will perform a reply action, and swiping right will perform a retweet action. Now you can go to Settings > TweetAgora, and assign either swipe to reply, retweet, view user profile, or view link
• View full sized avatars: Tap an avatar from the user profile to see the full-sized version
• Improved Instapaper and ReadItLater integration: Send to Instapaper/Read it Later from the tweet view
• Paper.li added to Filters page: No more annoying paper.li tweets! (full version only)
• Improved performance and bug fixes: Faster initial loading, beter overall performance & stability
• Improved power consumption: TweetAgora’s already-low power consumption is even lower
• URL Scheme integration: TweetAgora can now be launched using ta:// links – we use these (shortened by tinyurl) to share agoras, but there are lots of other things they can do – we’ll write a follow-up post on these soon
So please, grab the latest version of TweetAgora and start sharing those Agoras!

Twitter Lists are a great way to organize the people you’d like to follow, and we’re confident in saying that TweetAgora has one of the best implementations of Lists around. For some cases however, using an Agora can be a better fit. Here’s a quick overview of the advantages of using a Twitter List vs using an Agora in TweetAgora:

Having written about some of our design decisions, now we’re going to change gears a little and talk about Use Cases for TweetAgora that you might not have considered. First up: “The Follow-and-Mute”.
When someone adds you on Twitter you can either follow them back, or not. If you’ve never met them before, your decision process is pretty simple: check out their bio, scan through their tweets, and if they seem interesting you follow them back.
Like many of you, when Twitter introduced the “new style” retweets we shook our heads. Their intentions were good: being able to retweet long tweets, ensuring that the original tweet has been unedited, and hiding repeat retweets from the timeline are all theoretically good things…but RT-style retweets got popular for a reason.
The ability to add personal commentary to a retweet changes the whole context of the interaction. Sometimes an original tweet only has retweet value when additional commentary is added. Asking a question, adding information, or expressing disagreement in an RT can be a huge conversation-starter. Sometimes it can be difficult to squeeze in extra commentary for longer tweets, but it’s usually easy enough to tweak the original tweet without losing the core message.
