TWTRTweetTableViewCell popping images in



The general pattern in mobile development when loading and displaying an image is to show some kind of progress spinner or placeholder image while the image is loaded from the server and then gracefully fade in the final image once the data is received.

TWTRTweetTableViewCell simply shows a white square (looks terrible on a dark background) and then jarringly pops the image in once it is loaded. I think users these days have higher expectations, it looks a bit amateur, I want a smoother animated transition.

Can TWTRTweetTableViewCell (and I presume TWTRTweetView also has the same issue) be updated to handle this more nicely?


Yes, we definitely can handle this better and it’s on our roadmap to do so. I’ll keep this thread updated with any new news.


Awesome thanks!
