Twitter hires a third party app developer to join its core Android UI team

Twitter (NASDAQ:TWTR) users on Android have never been happy with the official Twitter app and the development team behind it. Frankly speaking, it leaves a lot to be desired. That’s the reason so many third party Twitter apps have sprung up in the Android Play Store lately. One such popular third party app is Falcon Pro which has made quite a loyal following. As a Falcon Pro app user for the last few months, I can tell that it is much better than the official Twitter app and other third party apps in almost every respect.falcon-pro-twitter-app

Joaquim Verges, the developer of the Falcon app has announced on Twitter that he is joining the Twitter’s Android core UI team next week. He tweeted that he wants to “make a killer official app with full API and modern UI”. So we can surely hope for some good things for the official Twitter app in the coming weeks.

He also indicated the reason why he is jumping on to the Twitter’s team. Twitter is known for having a policy of not supporting the third party apps well. Joaquim said in a tweet “I’ve grown tired of all the third party limitations. I want to make a killer official app.”

This doesn’t mean that he will be alienating Falcon Pro 3 users. So all those who have paid for the app do not need to feel short changed. The app will still be under active development. He clarified this in a tweet in which he said “Falcon stays with me. IMO it’ll be a great place to try new experiments without the slowness of a big company.”

For the end users, all this means that Twitter will hopefully become better and more functional in coming updates. We’ll keep you posted on further developments.
