Twitter Announces ‘QuickBar’ to Be Removed in App Update Today

There was a tonne of noise made about the twitter app’s ‘QuickBar’ (which was quickly coined ‘dickbar’ on twitter). The Twitter team just announced the following on their blog:

Rather than continue to make changes to the QuickBar as it exists, we removed the bar from the update appearing in the App Store today. We believe there are still significant benefits to increasing awareness of what’s happening outside the home timeline. Evidence of the incredibly high usage metrics for the QuickBar support this. For now, we’re going back to the drawing board to explore the best possible experience for in-app notification and discovery.

The QuickBar fix ‘twizzler’ was introduced via Cydia, but it seems it won’t be necessary anymore. Are you happy about this?
