Twitter for Android gets update, offers new fonts, swipe-able tabs and Holo UI

Twitter has updated its Android app and for the first time, Twitter users on Android seem content with the app; among the changes is a new font, swipe-able tabs, and the use of the Holo UI; the lack of a decent Twitter app led to a cottage industry of third party apps, but with this update it finally looks like Twitter hit the nail right on the head...

Obviously you do! I never understood why people read and article they don't care about and then leave a stupid comment.

I came here, scrolled down, wrote the comment and left.

I am like you. Call me old school or whatever, (even though I am 33) but I really never understood the whole point of Facebook & Twitter. If I want you to know my business I will call or text you.
Some people post on Facebook or Twitter when they have to take a dump or when the most pointless things happened to them. It's like a soap opera 24/7.
Sure I can see Facebook or Twitter being used as a marketing window for businesses because indeed it's huge but I kinda find it very narcissistic. Why do people care if they have 700 friends whom 70% of those people they have NEVER met.
I am just saying.

Just updated. Wow, it looks A WHOLE LOT better. Love the new Holo UI. Now all they have to let us do is customize it a bit more. I'd like some different color themes.

Looks like the WP app that got released a few weeks back. Nice looking. So is Holo the Android answer to Metro?

Well many developers are only now starting to utilize the Holo theme (which was introduced back when ICS was released) since less than half of devices actually had ICS or above until recently. Now that many people have ICS (which utilizes the Holo theme), developers are finally incorporating it into their apps.

The update made the app very laggy in every part, specially the profile.
