On Wednesday, a new version of Twitter for Android was released. The new design has wider and taller timelines that fill the screen, a flat navigation bar, tap and hold for quick actions, and many other features. Users can quickly navigate between tabs by swiping across the screen. Besides this, while typing a new Tweet or search, users will see username and hashtag suggestions, making it easier to connect with friends and join conversations.
In addition to the Android app, updates have also been released for Twitter for iPhone and mobile.twitter.com. All three mobile apps, plus twitter.com, now show more types of content in expanded Tweets: photo galleries, apps and product listings.
With the new design, users will also see a new link right below content that is shared from another mobile app, such as Foursquare or Path. The blog stated,” The link lets you open or download the app right from the Tweet, depending on whether or not you have it installed. As an example, if you expand a Tweet to view a photo from Flickr, you can tap the link to open the photo in Flickr. If you don’t yet have the Flickr app on your phone, you can tap to install it from the Tweet.”
Users can download these updates from the Google Play or App Store.
