    When I open the twitter app and use the keyboard to type in a search, the keyboard stays frozen on the screen and also freezes the phone. When I hit the power/home key it takes quite a bit of time for the phone to respond to my prompt. Even when it does go to the home screen the keyboard is still frozen on the screen. Then when the screen blacks out and I hit the power/home key again it takes a good 10-20 seconds for the phone to wake up, and then after this whole process takes place I am able to use twitter with no problem. This problem only came about after this sh!t kat update. Any advice as to what may help this issue?!

    Also, most of the time when I open my Internet browser and start to type in the search bar, my phone double inputs my letters. Really Pisses me off, lol

    My husband has had this exact same problem with the keyboard freezing in place when searching in the Twitter app, also since the upgrade. It doesn't happen in any other app he uses. We've cleared cache/reinstalled Twitter, cleared cache on the keyboard, etc but nothing resolves the issue. He has discovered if he just taps a key on the unresponsive keyboard and then waits about 30 seconds, it will finally clear itself. Anyone with a better solution?

    I have had the exact same problem with the keyboard freezing during a Twitter Search since the software upgrade. I have reinstalled Twitter, cleared the cache on both the keyboard and twitter and tried other things as well. Nothing has worked. Hopefully they will find a fix soon. Seems like the updates always cause more problems that they solve.

    The only fix I could find was to download the Google Keyboard from the Play Store. But it worked.

    This has been happening to be as well after the update and it is so annoying! I shouldn't have to download an additional keyboard. Get it together Android!

    Never had this frozen keyboard Twitter problem on my cell - Galaxy S3 (even after KitKat) but began happening recently on my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (like other problems ... had to send back month #4 for battery, gone > 2 weeks) ... Makes me wonder if I should've upgraded my iPad3 instead of the Samsung tab. Same $ in April 2014 at Best Buy ($399)

    I came here in search of this exact same problem, I'm using a galaxy tab pro.
    I'm not interested in changing out my keyboard to fix this.
    I'd be willing to swap twitter clients first.

    Since it seems like there is no immediate fix for this, can anyone suggest a good/decent alternate twitter client?

    Yup five months later still the same issue on my Galaxy S4. I guess Samsung and Twitter just decided to ignore this issue since I got an update not 7 days ago and it was not addressed. How annoying.

    There is a fix, go to task manager by holding home button. Go to Clear Defaults and click on TouchWiz home and clear it's cache.

    When you are on the typing screen on your notification panel at the top of your screen you will see a keyboard just tap it and use swype as a keyboard.

    If you've found this thread in search of a fix, I have one for you. When you type something to search within the Twitter App, do NOT click on a twitter result. Instead, click the magnifying glass icon that shows up on the keyboard interface. This will then load what you typed into Twitter's search. So, as long as you know the actual hashtag or Twitter Handle, you should be fine.

    I tried clicking on the magnifying glass, but the keyboard is still frozen on the screen. I can't use Twitter at all on my phone, which is really stupid!
