  • (2019-07-28) Aleksei Batanin: Doesn't work with new twitter
  • (2019-07-17) Zach Peterson: I saw lots of recent reviews stating that this extension no longer worked as intended. However, it seems to be working just fine for me. When there are new tweets, I see the "X new tweets" message for a split second, and then it automatically displays the newest tweets in my timeline. Thank you! EDIT: As of July 16, 2019 this extension no longer works with "old twitter." I saw that devs changelog that said it was updated today to work with "new twitter." However, I haven't had the new site pushed to me yet, so I'm back to refreshing manually. If this extension starts working again for me, I'll change my rating back to 5 stars.

  • (2017-12-20) Ju Hi: Very Good Job!! I love this add-in!
  • (2017-09-28) dude463 waze: !!!EDIT It looks like an update came out today that fixes this. Back to 5 stars. Awesome!!!! Something happened in the last week. Before if you scrolled down a bit it pause refreshing and you could explore your twitter feed. But now for some reason it keeps pushing you to the top. Very annoying and makes this worse than having to click the ## new messages alert.
  • (2017-09-25) Tobias Sieber: please update again, so it doesn't get me to the top after every new tweet
  • (2017-08-06) Lucky: made my twitter feed lag so bad
  • (2017-07-25) Mike Reynolds: Seems to work well. If it doesn't work at first, just refresh the page a few times. I like this b/c it only updates when there is something to update.
  • (2017-06-04) Dominik Kaszewski: Works. What more could you ask for?
  • (2016-06-14) Bradford Bugni: Only works when I scroll the page. Get "Auto refresh for twitter" instead.
  • (2016-06-09) Luke Peters: Had to restart Chrome to get it start but it works. Thanks!
  • (2016-06-01) haploide allel: Used to be great; but since last update; it doesn't refresh anymore... Even when it's at the top of the page. Have to move slightly down then up, to have it "automatically" refresh... Sad sad :'(
  • (2016-03-05) Dwight Stegall: I would like this extension better if it didn't jump me back to the top of the page and force me to lose my place. I just want it to load them and let me scroll up when I'm ready. Until then I'm uninstalling it.
  • (2016-03-05) Dalton Winterbach: Works just like it says

  • (2021-10-05, v:3.0.1) Vince Laurent: Twitter feed not refreshing.
    Not sure which app update broke it but it starting failing recently.
  • (2020-10-07, v:3.0.1) Brian Zammit: Not working
    The twitter feed is not refreshing. Is there some config needed to get the plugin to work?
  • (2020-09-28, v:3.0.1) Matt Buxton: No longer working
    Hi, as of yesterday this extension no longer automatically refreshes twitter for me. I am using the latest build of chrome.
  • (2020-03-26, v:3.0.1) Ian Smith: Lists
    Refresh for Lists as well as Home.
  • (2019-10-17, v:3.0.1) Liya Rin: Only refreshes when window on focus
    The extension seems to be working, but not like it used to work before the Twitter rework. Before I used to be able to leave the page open on my second screen, and it would refresh while I do stuff in my main screen. Now it only refreshes when I have the window on focus, I need to click the page every so often to refresh Twitter, which isn't much different from clicking the refresh button. Kinda needs fixing
  • (2019-09-13, v:3.0.1) Isaak: Extension does not work with GoodTwitter extension
    Thanks for the work you do! Wanted to ask if it'd be possible for this extension to work in conjunction with the GoodTwitter extension which basically makes the current Twitter layout look like what it was before the layout change. If this change could be implemented, that would be amazing!
