The official Twitter app for iPhone and iPad received an update today to version 5.4. The update brings with it enhancements to search and also bids farewell to support for video uploads to Mobypicture, Vodpod and Posterous.
- As you search you’ll see more topic and user suggestions for your query, based on what’s happening in real time. You’ll also see these suggestions when adding a hashtag or username as you compose a new Tweet.
- Top Tweets from big moments in the past pop out when you search for a given term. For example, searching for “election” might highlight Tweets from several months ago.
- When you open a web page you can now see the related Tweet for more context. Just pull the tray icon up or down to see or hide the Tweet.
- It’s easier to see long conversations in the Tweet details view, which now shows all of the replies to any Tweet
- When you block a user in the app, their Tweets will instantly disappear from the Connect tab in the app
- Pull-to-refresh in Discover shows a new, smoother animation
- Support for traditional Chinese
- Logout support (iOS 6 only)
