Twitter update finally allows you to crop and rotate photos from within the app itself

In its latest update to Twitter, the company behind the massively popular microblogging network has added a piece of code that has been long due. As you probably gleaned from the title, the latest iteration of the app now has a simplistic photo editor built-in, allowing you to perform essential edits like cropping and rotating photos. As essential as these are, it actually took Twitter quite a while to implement such functionality for one reason or another.

Changes didn't stop there, and the Twitter team has added another caveat to photo sharing -- tagging people. Much alike to Facebook, the Twitter app will now prompt you to tag people on photos that have... well, people in them. Another fine-sounding improvement is the addition of 'recommended' tweets to your feed, once you've read through all your latest updates. Those will pop up only after you refresh, and we're also told to expect to see trending tweets and suggestions on who to follow.

While the update is currently only live for Android, an iOS refresh should also materialize in the near future.

I'm done with these constant "redesigns", nothing seems to hold water with each redesign ever since these guys IPOed. It's getting cluttered and messy and they're moving away from their core model sacrificing user experience

True I always liked going to the discover section and seeing new tweets, and articles from Huffington Post, CNN, etc. now everything is scattered and sometimes I wonder if the trending section is up to date.
