Announcing this, the blog stated,”From buzz about the VMAs to debates around upcoming football games, people come to Twitter to take part in these real-time, global, public conversations. To date, such exchanges haven’t always been easy to follow. With this in mind, we’ve now made it easier for you to see conversations as they’re taking place.”
Folowing this update, Tweets that are part of a conversation are shown in chronological order so it’s easier for users to follow along. Users will be able to see up to three Tweets in sequence in their home timeline. To see more, a users can tap a Tweet to see all the replies, including those from people they don’t follow. This new feature will be rolled out to everyone.
With this update, users can easily share conversations over email — irrespective of the fact whether their friends are on Twitter or not. On iPhone and Android, users can share individual Tweets over email, and on Android they can share via direct message (DM) as well.
Users can now report individual Tweets for abuse or spam directly from Twitter for Android and Twitter.com. This feature will be rolling out gradually; it’s already available on Twitter for iPhone.
This update aims to improve the Twitter for Android experience on entry-level Android smartphones with limited storage, such as the Samsung Galaxy Y, HTC Explorer, Micromax Bolt, etc. For these devices, the Twitter app is now less than half the previous size, making it much faster to download and easier to install.
