What is Twitter Owl?
Twitter Owl is a free tweak that adds a lot of useful features to the official Twitter app such as disabling typing notifications, removing ads, saving videos, and more. Sideload the tweak on non-jailbreak devices, or install Owl on jailbroken devices through Cydia Repository.
Owl tweak comes with a lot of features for the official Twitter app available in the App Store. Once installed, it adds a new preference pane to Twitter's Settings page from where you can open Owl and access all options. By default, every toggle is disabled.
With this powerful tweak, you can add a new layer of security to Twitter with Face / Touch ID. Safeguard your information and privacy from users trying to access your Twitter app. Disable typing identification to prevent users from being notified when you are typing a message.
Disable Like action will ignore all like requests by the user. Useful hack to browse tweets anonymously. Remove all fleets from displaying on top of your Twitter feed. Owl tweak allows you also to browse feeds without any Twitter Ads and download videos with a simple long tap.
On top of that, you can use Twitter Owl to enable the option to save tweets as images by long-pressing the tweet for 1 second. Works with both, tweets and comments. This feature is really useful to share and comment on someone's information.
Twitter Owl tweak comes also with Twitter Labs section. From here you can disable the unfollow confirmation alert, disable Twitter's confirmation for muting conversations, and enable a simpler user profile to collapse all user profile bio for a more clean look (hide followers, bio, name, etc.).
Last but not least, Owl enables a voice message feature that allows you to send voice messages to any user in your chats, and modify the bottom bar to include the composer button to quickly compose a tweet. Owl for Twitter is an excellent addon for your Twitter app.
The tweak works with all modern jailbreaks running iOS 12, iOS 13, and iOS 14. I was testing Owl for Twitter running unc0ver but it will work also with other jailbreaks including checkra1n. On iOS 15 you can easily sign and install the included IPA file, or try direct web links.
Owl tweak was created by the same developer behind Rhino for Instagram, Unicorn for TikTok, Dragon for WhatsApp, Lizard for Reddit, Shark for Messenger, Dart+ for Snapchat, Honeybee for Tinder, and many others. The free version of Twitter Owl displays ads.
