Twitter Updates Android App with Improved UI and New Features

 

‘Tis the season for social networking sites to update their Android Market app, I guess. Just after we saw yesterdays much needed and anticipated Facebook update, Twitter follows suit and releases one today as well. With the new update you will notice a few changes with the UI and the addition of new features like:

  • The latest version of Twitter offers a faster, simpler way to stay close to everything you care about on your Android.
  • Home is where you start: a personal collection of Tweets from the sources you care about. The Tweet details show rich information such as replies, retweets and embedded images.
  • Connect is the place to see who followed or mentioned you, retweeted or favorited one of your Tweets.
  • Discover is where you can tap into the stories and trends people are talking about in your world.

I really like the new Twitter app and its UI improvements. I usually use a third party app for my Twitter account but I might just keep using the official Twitter one now, I just wish they would have made the widget scrollable. Jump past the cut to check out some new screenshots, promo video, and download links. Be sure to let us know what you think!
