Twitter introduces new visuals to iOS and Android apps: larger images bring it closer to Facebook
Twitter has just received a pretty big visual overhaul for iOS and Android, bringing it closer to Facebook with large profile pictures for users and a more intuitive swipe-enabled interface for photo streams.

First, the new profile feature brings large header images “so you can express who you are more meaningfully.” The same image will be displayed on phone, tablet or computer.

The second big new feature is photo streams for images shared on Twitter. You can now swipe left or right through thumbnails or or tap to view fullscreen images. One new feature Android has that iOS users won’t have is pinch-to-zoom for images.

Twitter has introduced the update to both its Android and iOS official clients and you can download the new version on the app catalogs right away.

New app seems to be good, not that Twitter hasn't been. I have always had a good experience with the twitter app. Unlike Facebook, I dont really see much of a reason to opt for using a 3rd party app.
