The official Twitter app (iTunes) was updated today. One of the first things I noticed was the new promoted tweets showing up at the top of the tweet list. Although, this kind of sucks, they also use this new promoted tweets bar to show trending topics, you know, like #tigerblood.
What’s new in Version 3.3:
- Quick Bar, shows trends and other important things without leaving your timeline! Swipe the Quick Bar left/right to cycle through trends
- Trends based on your location
- Cleaner, redesigned Tweet compose screen.
- Autocomplete @usernames and hashtags
- Easier photo uploading
- Find friends using your phone’s contacts
- Improved DM conversation view, now works similar to SMS/Chat
- Cleaned up preferences
- Bug fixes
I’m also hoping “Bug fixes” includes a fix for all my DM randomly showing up as not read.
Thanks for the heads up @daveizzle
