Latest Update of Twitter app for android is version 5.8.1. That is Twitter 5.8.1 for android is latest update of Twitter app released on May 14, 2014. This is the latest update available with great new feature to download twitter app on android mobile phone. With Twitter app apk, you can watch the world unfold like never before. Twitter is an online social networking and micro blogging service that enables users to send and read “tweets”, which are text messages limited to 140 characters. Registered users can read and post tweets but unregistered users can only read them
• Get real-time stories, pictures, videos, conversations, ideas, and inspiration all in your timeline.
• Follow people and your interests to get unfiltered access and unique behind-the-scenes perspectives.
• Express yourself with photos, videos and comments.
Despite recent user uproar over the loss of Instagram images displaying on Twitter (photos posted via Instagram now open in—gasp!—a separate window), Twitter remains one of the most active and attractive social networks. The mobile experience remains key to its success, which relies on short, punchy, and often spur-of-the-moment chatter. The official Twitter Android app (free) balances simplicity with essential features, such as the ability to manage more than one account and built-in photo editing tools, well enough to keep it relevant among contenders. It also doesn’t hurt that Twitter purchased its main competitor TweetDeck thus preventing that app from outpacing the namesake Twitter app.
Stability and reliability also count for something, and, while Twitter delivers well enough on both counts, it’s still far from perfect on either—that’s a big reason we’ve scored Twitter a four out of five stars. The site clogs up and goes down from time to time. Drafted tweets sometimes hang in the ether until you delete them and start afresh. But all in all, the app loads and refreshes quickly and smoothly and keeps you connected to your Twitter friends.
Design and Features :
A clean user experience and smart design put the Twitter Android app in the big leagues. In the early days of Twitter, its own apps weren’t as competitive and feature-rich as those third parties built for the social network. After three major iterations for the Android version (this review looks at version 3.6) the official Twitter-branded app is the way to go for many users. Best of all, if you don’t have a Twitter account and aren’t interested in joining, you can still use the app to search and read the site.
More likely than not, though, if you’re downloading the app, you do have a Twitter user name and password, and perhaps more than one. Sign in with one of them to start, and you can add more accounts thereafter. After you’ve set up all your accounts, you can toggle between them quickly and easily. It’s a highly efficient system, and one of the best features of the app.
Design and Photo Effects :
Rather than bombard your eyes with a cacophony of color, the Twitter app sticks to a more sophisticated color scheme of black and white, reserving muted shades of digital bluebird blue for the top spanner and accents only . It looks practical without being too serious, a simple design that takes into consideration the growing number of business users and content on the site. The app’s look is sharp enough to still be appealing to people who use Twitter for personal or casual reasons, too.
A nice touch on the interactive side: Double-tapping the home icon at the lower left forces the window to scroll back to the top automatically, which means less finger flicking for users. The same function of auto-scrolling back to the top works on the @-reply page, too. The newest feature, photo filters, mimics the basic functionality of photo-sharing site Instagram to a large extent, and it’s only available on Twitter’s mobile apps, not the website. Snap a photo using your Android phone or upload one from your existing images, and offers dramatic, digital filter effects, cropping and resizing tools, and an auto-enhance button that gently increases the sharpness and colors.
Twitter has eight photo effects in all: vignette, black and white, warm, cool, vintage, cinematic, happy, and gritty. A ninth option in the interface is “No Filter,” which I’m going to say doesn’t count. You can see all the photo filters applied to the same image in a grid, helping you decide which one is best among your choices, which is quite different from the Instagram experience in which you swipe through previews but can’t see side-by-side comparisons. Twitter also does offer the ability to page through the images one by one in a slideshow, if you prefer (I don’t).
Each account has its own options panel, where you can access your profile, account settings, user lists that you follow, favorite tweets, and drafts of tweets that haven’t been sent yet. Drafts would be one of my favorite features of the Twitter app, except that it’s slightly confusing when you look at the options that are available, and it doesn’t offer the ability to schedule when a draft will post.
The Connect tab charts your interactions with your Twitter friends, showing your mentions and letting you know when others retweet or begin following you. Next to that is Discover, which houses several items including relevant stories, an activity stream (what you’re connections are doing on Twitter), trending hash tags, suggestions for who to follow, categories, and a find-friends function. While you likely won’t be spending the majority of your time in these tabs, they are convenient for the more active Twitter users.
The final tab shows your Twitter profile, which had been refreshed in the last update with Facebook-style “Headline Photos” as a backdrop to your primary avatar. But in the latest version, you can now view a gallery of previously tweeted images by hitting the “View more photos” button under the image carousel. This lets you swipe up and down to quickly navigate through all of a users previous images. And, of course, your profile is where you can see your Direct Messages, manage your lists and favorites, access saved searches, and more, just like before.
