    I believe I will keep what I have now which works perfect until I hear better results from the new 5.1 app.
    Jag,
    Tks for the info.
    I have no issues other than the lack of Badges, with the curent version or the previous version.
    Good Luck

    Massie by the way out of curiosity if I have my Twitter App closed and shut down but signed in though what are the badges for? I got one today and when I opend it I could not tell what it was for and I have my app setup exactly like yours.
    When you open the app, there is a small light under the relevant icon at the bottom (Connect, Me, etc). And if you have View in Lockscreen on, you can see previews there.

    One more idea for you guys: has anyone checked their settings within the Twitter app itself:

    Tks Massie,
    I've check every possible setting that I'm aware of.
    Good Luck

    Below is the reply I received from Twitter Tech Support. It the same canned reply they sent me before:

    "Thank you for writing to us. Our engineers are aware of this issue and are investigating what may have caused it. Iíve added your account details as an example for them to reference.

    Once weíve identified and fixed the problem, your account will be affected automatically, so there's no need for you to check back.

    While we are closing this ticket, we havenít forgotten about your issue and hope to have a fix out as soon as possible.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience."

    Maybe someday they'll get it fix for those of us that have this issue.

    Good Luck

    In fact, that's exactly my setup, and my Twitter icon does stay badged until I open the app.
    Well I think I figured this out Massie,
    I thought I should have a badge displayed each time someone I followed posted a Tweet.
    But now I know that the badge only displays if someone is replying to my Tweet or initiated a Tweet directed to me.
    Tks for your time and willingness to help.

    Good Luck
