Twitter For iPhone Updated With Expandable Tweets, Better Notifications, New Icon

The Twitter client used to send a tweet is no longer displayed in the new Twitter for iPhone.

Twitter has updated its official iPhone app in the App Store with several new features, including added settings for notifications, enhancements to the Discover tab, the new expandable tweets feature for viewing media content in the timeline, stability improvements, and the new Twitter icon.

Twitter for iPhone 4.3 is available now in the App Store for free. Change log after the break:

What’s New in Version 4.3

Twitter for iPhone 4.3

– Enhanced experience around selected events with the best Tweets and photos from those involved
– Push notifications for Tweets: choose to receive notifications from people you follow anytime they tweet or retweet

    It’s still a fail, Tweetbot does most of that and then some, including the useful features Twitter decided to remove from their app last year. I’ve long deleted the Twitter app from my phone.
