The Droplr integration works like all of the other media sharing services in Tweetbot’s account settings pane. Storify can be used to export a string of tweets for the world to see.
Tweetbot’s tweet detail window has been improved with more details, like the ability to quickly see how many replies a certain tweet has collected. The conversation view has also been tinkered to show replies in a separated section of the window. Tweets shared over email will now be formatted more attractively as well.
Vimeo links in the timeline can now be viewed with preview thumbnails, like YouTube. Also, $stock tags can now be effectively used to track your favorite companies on Twitter.
The makers of Tweetbot, Tapbots, have included several minor improvements in this update that make the app an even more customizable Twitter experience. Hi-res images can now be uploaded with Tweetbot over WiFi, and and retweets from specific accounts can be hidden at any time.
