If you prefer Twitter to RSS feeds when it comes to getting your news, you’ll be happy to learn that I have finally setup a Twitter account for Android Authority. http://twitter.com/AndroidAuth It’s going to be…
Twitter has become a social media phenomenon unmatched by any other. The ability to receive updates from friends, your favorite celebrities, and about what happens around the world in just 140 characters is the basis for its immense popularity. Moreover, the availability of the Twitter mobile app across all platforms mean it's never been easier to stay connected to the Twitter-verse.
The official Twitter app for Android has just received a major update. This update, that takes the app to version 3.3, introduces a host of new exciting features alongside the usual tweaks and bug fixes. New features include:
The best feature introduced with the update is the “expanded” tweets. While they are still limited to 140 characters, you can now view images, video, and other media content as a part of the tweet itself. Another great new feature is the addition of push notifications. Now, you'll always know when a friend, or anyone else you're following, tweets or re-tweets something. You can further enable these notifications for individual users, instead of everyone you follow.
If you haven't used the Twitter for Android app yet, you can find it on the Google Play Store here.
