Twitter's Apple Watch app is quietly disappearing from Apple's app store – even though you probably don't need it.
If you've just updated your iPhone version of the Twitter app, you will discover that Twitter's companion app for the Apple Watch has vanished from the App Store.
Apple Watch users turned to the app to look at recent tweets, check out top trends and send tweets using the Watch's voice-to-text features – and now the app feature is gone!
When asked for a comment about this disappearance, Twitter said: "We heard from people that notifications were the most helpful part of the Apple Watch Twitter experience. With this, we are focusing on supporting more robust, media-rich notifications. We are committed to providing the very best Twitter experience on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Apple Watch, and we'll continue to iterate and improve our apps across all platforms."
Although this comment isn't exactly helpful, we do know that Twitter hasn't updated its Apple Watch for some time now. And we know that Apple Watch owners can still get Twitter notifications thanks to the fact that Apple's watchOS mirrors iPhone notifications.
We can't really say whether Twitter will be replacing the app anytime soon, but we can say that you might not need it anyway!
