Twitter, the official Twitter app for the iPad and iPhone, has been updated this week – and has added the ability to launch links in tweets in an inline browser.
There are no other notable changes in this latest update, to Version 3.3.4 – just unspecified accessibility improvements and bug fixes.
The new link launching feature is quite a nice one. It’s certainly a quicker way to see if a link is interesting when it’s a shortened link and the tweet text doesn’t reveal much about it.
Here’s an App Store link for Twitter; it’s a free app and a universal app, designed to work on both iPad and iPhone.
The official Twitter app for iPad and iOS got another update yesterday, to Version 3.3.2.
The big new feature is support for uploading photos and videos taken with the iPad 2 along with your tweets.
I just tried this out a little and had success. I tested with two videos from the iPad 2:
— First I tried one of just under two minutes in length that was already in my Camera Roll on the iPad 2. This took ages (8-9 minutes) to upload and show the tweet, then another few minutes to process the video on yfrog.com.
— Then I shot a quick video of my huge, lovable Labrador with the iPad 2 straight out of the Twitter app. This one was only just over 10 seconds and both it and the tweet it was attached to uploaded almost instantly.
I’m really not sure this is a feature I will make use of more than once in a blue moon, but it’s nice to know it’s there. Oh, and if you want to check out my handsome big Lab, here’s that quick clip: http://t.co/fopyKyO
