New and improved

A few minor improvements have been made lately:
  • User icons are cached in Twitizer, meaning there can no longer be "broken" icons, even though they might still not be 100% up-to-date. This should also lead to better performance.
  • Many users change their icons often, so Twitizer will now refresh the icons on a daily basis.
  • What's happening? has been moved inside the text field to save some space on the screen.
  • Browser caching and GZIP compression have been activated and database queries have been optimized to increase overall performance.
  • The sharing toolbar has been improved.
  • Timeline can be sorted on relevance.
  • Users can be sorted on username.
  • Timeline and Users toolbars now use icons to enable wider text fields.

Advice:

  • If you make changes to your Twitter profile, you only need to log in to twitizer.com afterwards to have your information updated there as well.
