Flappy Bird may no longer be available on the App Store, but that hasn’t stopped the folks at Twitterrific from pouncing on the opportunity to bundle a lookalike mini-game within its popular Twitter client. As discovered by a gentleman named Andy, and demonstrated on video by Jeff Benjamin at iDownloadBlog, the all-new Twitterrific 5 has a hidden easter egg…
To activate the so-called Ollie Bird game, swipe down on your Twitterrific stream further than you normally would. You may have to repeat that a few times before it works. If successful, you should now see a knockoff Flappy Bird rendition that revolves around the official Twitterrific bird Ollie navigating through pipes in a similar manner to the popular game.
Unfortunately this apparent feature is not enough to drag me away from using Tweetbot, which I have on both iOS and OS X. But the inclusion of a Flappy Bird knock-off is a smart decision for Twitterrific, especially because of how viral the game has been in headlines for the past few weeks. If you haven’t given the game a try yet, you should.
Which is the better Twitter client? Twitterrific or Tweetbot?
