Add Confirmation to iOS Twitter Actions

Frequent users of the iOS Twitter app have probably noticed how easy it is to accidentally perform actions when viewing the timeline feed. Tapping the favorite button or retweeting by mistake can happen inadvertently when scrolling. The jailbreak tweak TwitConfirm seeks to reduce these accidental actions for those with jailbroken devices.

iOS 7 jailbreak TwitConfirm

Once installed, TwitConfirm adds a confirmation screen to the retweet and favorite buttons. Selecting one of these actions will result in a dialog box requiring a Yes or No entry to proceed. Since the action is brought to the user's attention, retweeting or favoriting without even realizing it becomes a thing of the past.

Settings for TwitConfirm include a toggle to disable the tweak completely, as well as separate toggles to ask for confirmation when using the Favorite button or Retweet button. Without TwitConfirm, accidentally retweeted or favorited tweets can go unnoticed for some time. This tweak is a good way to avoid having to undo unwanted Twitter actions later.

TwitConfirm is available on Cydia from the BigBoss repo for free. Jailbreaking iOS 7.1.x is now possible with Pangu. Check here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 7.0.x with evasi0n 7. You can also find out how to purchase and install Cydia tweaks with this guide.
