Twitter conversations now easier to follow via app updateBy Hanleigh Daniels 29 August 2013 | Categories: news
The newest updates aim to make the task of discovering and following conversations on users’ timelines simpler. From now on tweets that are part of a conversation will be shown in chronological order, making it easier for users to follow, since they do not have to go digging through their timeline for the original tweet that kicked off the conversation.
Twitter stated that users will see up to three tweets in sequence in their home timeline, and if a user wants to see more they can do so by tapping on a tweet to see all the replies that it has amassed.
In addition, users are now able to report individual tweets for abuse or spam directly from within the official Twitter for Android application or via the Twitter.com website. According to Twitter, this feature will be rolling out gradually to users, and is already available on Twitter for iPhone.
Budget smartphone users will appreciate the fact that Twitter for Android has been enhanced to work better on entry-level, lower-specced Android powered smartphones. Improvements in support of this cause include the fact that the Twitter app is now less than half the previous size, making it download faster from Google Play and install easier as well.
