Earlier this week the team behind popular social networking and micro-blogging service Twitter announced that it updated its iPhone and Android apps to version 4.3 and 3.3 respectively. The updated apps are available for download on Apple’s App Store here and on Google’s Play Store here.

Through the voice of Product Manager Sung Hu Kim, Twitter explained that “these new apps contain several updates to bring you closer to everything you care about.” Let’s take a look at the new functionality you can expect to get from the updated iOS and Android Twitter apps, shall we?


What the Updated Twitter Apps for iOS and Android Have to Offer
  • Expanded tweets – tweets can be expanded with the iOS and Android apps, just like they can be expanded on This means you can read article summaries, view images, and play videos when you tap a tweet that links to The Atlantic, Etsy, or Vimeo for example.
  • Experience events – the iOS Twitter app complements live events by helping you discover Tweets and photos from said events.
  • Enhanced search – you will be presented with more suggestions when you search for people and that’s because major improvements in search autocomplete have been made.
  • Push notifications – the updated apps come with support for push notifications for tweets. When a person you follow tweets or retweets something, you get a push notification on your iOS and Android app.
Earlier this week the team behind popular social networking and micro-blogging service Twitter also announced that it overhauled its mobile website Through the voice of Designer Collen Baik, Twitter explained that the mobile website was overhauled because “Twitter is all about making real-time information available to everyone, everywhere”. The aim Twitter went for with the redesign was to “reach every person on the planet.” After completely overhauling the mobile client, Twitter got a lighter-weight, faster client that looks more like and the Twitter mobile apps.
