Twitter updates iOS and Android apps

Twitter updates iOS and Android apps
Twitter has finally updated both its iOS and Android apps, adding a new design and new features. For example, pictures can now be sent and received in Direct Messages and there are some swipeable tabs now spotted from the feed. Swipe the tabs to move from Home to Discover to Activity. You can also limit the replies and Retweets that you see to those coming from a Twitter account that you follow.

Using the search feature on Twitter, you can read tweets from people you follow or other Twitter subscribers who are nearby. And if you are an iPhone user, you can use Safari Reading List to save web articles to read later. Select a profile as a favorite, and you will receive a notification whenever that member sends out a tweet.

The update to the Twitter app is now available, waiting for you in the App Store or the Google Play Store.

What I'm looking for is a shortcut to a list and a widget that doesn't suck. It didn't come with this latest version.

Since Twitter ipoed they have been focusing so much on improved engagement & they have succeeded when they unveiled the last update before this one. These guys are doing a really good job and this update also makes sense.

It would be nice if they could increase the character limit. Other than that it runs pretty nicely unlike Facebook, which is getting more bloated and disorganized by the day.

+1 facebook got worse, I deleted my account early this year. Engadget sees this update as twitter's way to get back at Snapchat
