    Like a dummy, I installed the twitter app on my phone. Now I can't uninstall it. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get it off my phone?

    I have tried using the system uninstall. The system uninstall will uninstall the updates, but then fails.I have tried using two different uninstall applications...neither one did anything.

    Are you talking about the stock twitter app (just called twitter) or are you using a 3rd party app? If its stock and you're not rooted, its considered a system app and can't be uninstalled unless you're rooted.

    Ah...therein lies the problem. It is the stock twitter app, and I am not rooted. I guess I'll have to just put up with this app being there unless I decide to root this thing. I've got serious lag/performance issues so that might not be far off.

    Happy new year!

    Thanks everybody!
