Twitter Updates iOS App To Include Location-Based Trends And Better Vine Playback




Twitter’s default app for iPhone isn’t necessarily our favorite app for tweeting, but it appears Twitter is starting to get more serious about edging out its competition.

A new update for the Twitter app for iOS was just released today with a new location-based Trends feature. The update also includes the ability to invite friends to join Twitter, better playback on Vine videos, replies to retweets now have more information, and there’s some bug fixes too.

Here are the full release notes:

What’s New in Version 5.6

See what’s happening near you or around the world by viewing Trends in hundreds of locations.

• Invite friends to join Twitter from within the app
• Improved playback of Vine videos
• Replies to retweeted Tweets now include both the author and person who retweeted the Tweet
• Enjoy a smoother experience due to bug fixes and other improvements.


The new Twitter update can be downloaded from the App Store right now for free.
