Twitter Makes Search, Discovery and Links More Awesome in Native iPhone and Android Apps

By February 6, 2013

Follow me on:

Twitter has rolled out a bunch of great improvements to its native iPhone and Android apps, once again. And this is obviously great news for people like you and me who can't seem stop reading, searching, and clicking on links on Twitter from our smartphones.

There's been a big emphasis on the Discover tab, which now shows all tweets, activity, trends and suggestions appearing in one stream. According to the blog post announcement, the Twitter search tool is supposed to give you more relevant results now across all tweets, photos and accounts, and the new default view in the Connect tab has been set to show Interactions (which can be changed in your settings if you want to switch it to Mentions only). The iPhone app also now has a new dedicated search button that already existed on the iPad app and Android app.

Links also received an update, and even though it's a small one, I'm sure a lot of people will appreciate this one. Tweets that contain links will now open immediately once you tap it. Before, you had to tap the tweet to expand it and tap the link from there to open it. Nice little improvement there.

Twitter mobile power users, this is your signal to embrace your inner 140-character animal and go nuts.
