Twitter the huge social networking service, which has over five hundred million users registered with it, recently further updated its iOS & Android Application to make things better for its users.
The Discover Tab has greatly enhanced the way you view your information. Now all the information regarding Tweets, Trends, Activity and etc. will appear in a single stream. Earlier this was not so and all the activities were spread across different streams under the Discover tab. Activity here implies to the information regarding which Tweets are popular and have been shared more by people within your network as well as their contacts network . It also suggests to you the accounts that you should follow.
The information regarding Activity appears just below stories under the Discover tab. All you need to do is just tap on the stories that you would like to know about and check out the tweets, join in the discussions or re-tweet the information. In fact you can even add it to your favorites.
The updated iOS & Android App has made search much easier and more relevant. Search results as with the Discover tab now appear in a single stream and will show only results that pertain to your requirements.
Looking for contacts is much faster and easier now. All you need to do in the Connect tab is to start typing the person’s name and it will automatically complete the name for you.
The iOS & Android App has now also been made available through a search button on Twitter for iPhones, allowing users to search for information while on the go. This feature was already available to Android and iPad users. So now, when you tap on the search option under the Discover Tab you will be able to view the most recent queries you made. You can also directly go to a person’s profile using the Connect tab.
This has been redefined to automatically show interactions or what is called push notifications, regarding who the new people following you are, which of your tweets have been shared and which ones have been liked.
In-case you would not like to view all the interactions and just limit it to mention your interactions; you can do so by changing the automatic settings. This would require you to locate the Connect tab and select the Mentions only option under it.
Earlier if one wanted to go to a link, one would first require to tap on the tweet and then when it expanded you would need to tap again to get to the website. All that is now history. With the recent updates in iOS & Android App you can directly access the website with just one tap.
