I just noticed this yesterday: A brief pull on the Pulley Menu renders Twitter app inactive (and the phone un-responsive).

What leads to the event: Open notifications screen by an up-swipe from the bottom edge of the screen, from anywhere. Tap Twitter. Briefly pull and release the Pulley Menu (can easily be done by accident).

The event: The screen becomes dimmed. No edge-swipes work. Upon tapping the screen anywhere, it gets brighter for the time of the tap. Power button locks the screen, then it unlocks normally. Going back to Twitter, the same screen is there. Restarting the Jolla seems to solve the issue temporarily (until the next brief pull of the Pulley Menu at Twitter).

Extra: When first noticing this, I did not try to lock the screen, but I powered the Jolla off. This led to the continuous red blinking of the LED. Taking the battery out, putting it back and powering the device on solved the issue. (This is not this case! https://together.jolla.com/question/15606/what-means-led-blinking-red/ Edit: rather this one. https://together.jolla.com/question/22783/bug-green-led-blinking-phone-yammed/)

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Since I am facing exactly the same issue and I am just trying to find the other threads describing the same or similar issue. My phone is re-installed from 1.005 up to and only few native apps are installed. In my opinion it is a bug in since it didn't happen in previous releases. I hope it get's attention by the Jolla guys.

I just finished re-installing my Jolla from step one ( The issue is present. I just found out that it is enough to disable and re-enable Twitter account. So, no reboot is needed.

@LVPVS The issue you are describing in the beginning of your post, sounds like this issue https://together.jolla.com/question/21869/bug-messages-app-notifications-view-twitter-view-enteres-erroneous-state/ - I'm not able to reproduce it though. But if you are its a good thing!

I was not able to reproduce following the instructions either. But then again, I haven't seen this issue reproducing itself for a while as well. Anyway, I will close this as a duplicate, because after the description it looks the same.
