The official Twitter app has received a rather major update in version 5.3, with the goal of providing a ‘single stream of content’ in each tab. Reaction to the update has been positive according to recent App Store reviews.
Instantly access great content with improvements to search and Discover on iPhone.
- Discover delivers a single stream of Tweets, Trends, Activity and accounts to follow. Pull to refresh or keep scrolling to see more content.
- Search now shows the most relevant mix of people, Tweets and photos.
- It’s also easier to use search with one button at the top of the app.
- You can see your five most recent searches and tap them to redo the search, or you can clear your recent search history.
- Links instantly open web pages when you tap URLs in your stream.
- Performance improvements make launch times faster, especially for older iOS devices.
