After rumours suggested that Twitter’s mobile apps were due for an update, the goods arrived today. The new features include expanded tweets (viewing links, videos and images inline), the ability to set notifications for individual people, search autocomplete and new discovery tools for events.
The expanded tweets section is the biggest news of the update, as Twitter also added support for links from the likes of Kickstarter, Vimeo, Etsy and more. Many of these features have already been available on the web version of Twitter, but bringing them to the mobile apps is an important first step to unifying the feature set across platforms.
