Official Twitter Updates – Allows For Multiple Account Support, And Push Notifications

The official Twitter app in the Market has been updated, and it brings along some much needed features. Multiple account support, push notifications, and much better widget options. Looks like they’re finally catching up to all the other 3rd party Twitter apps.

With the widgets, you can now have it show either mentions or tweets, but I still feel they should both come in one widget (like LauncherPro’s), but this is better than nothing. Is anyone rocking the official Twitter, or does everyone use a different client? If you want to learn more about the update, head over to Twitter’s blog.

    Updated today on a droid 2. Had a choice of show tweets or mentions on the widget. Chose mentions by mistake and now I can’t change back.  Has anyone figured this out or do I have to uninstall/reinstall?

  • I needed to send you this tiny remark just to give thanks yet again about the pleasant opinions you’ve documented in this case. It has been really seriously generous with people like you to allow easily all many people would have offered for sale for an electronic book to make some cash for themselves, specifically now that you might have tried it in case you desired. Those good tips as well acted to provide a easy way to recognize that most people have the identical passion the same as my own to see great deal more on the subject of this problem. I’m sure there are some more enjoyable instances ahead for folks who read your site.

    Multiple account support, push notifications, and much better widget options,,,nice features!

  • I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

    How are they push notifications if it still has a refresh period?  How does that work?  I still don’t like that it doesn’t populate an email subject if you “share” via Gmail.  And you still can’t scroll indefinitely back in your timeline – it only seems like it goes back a day or less and then you can’t load more.  We’ll see if it still remembers your position in the timeline or not.

    Does it bring back any of the eye candy they hand in the earlier versions?

    I installed the new Market this morning and I see that there is an update for the Twitter app available but when I tap on it I only get the option to Open or Uninstall.  There’s no update option that will allow me to install the update.  Anyone else seeing this?

  • RideVT

    Certainly a step in the right direction but still not up to par with the 3rd party apps available IMO.  I’ve tried several and keep coming back to Tweetcaster

  • Stormbladex69

    I use Tweetdeck… yeah I know it was bought by Twitter. I would rather use TweetComb, TweetCasterPro or Plume… something, but I like being able to see my feed from FaceBook, Twitter, Foursquare all in one place. Anyone know of another one to use for a single Feed option? Guess I could probably use it within TapTu or Pulse, but I prefer the other the other clients listed above view for feeds.
    Anyone know those Devs and might pass along that feature from my Wish List?

    I must be missing something, but I don’t see an option for push notifications in the settings menu.

    • mjal

      Same for me. Anyone find it?

      • Anonymous

        in the settings, click on the account you want and there will be a notifications settings options. you can pick which ones you want pushed (mentions, dms, etc)

        • Ace87

          So tweets still aren’t pushed? That is the most important part for me.

          • Anonymous

            I believe so. It looks like it in that screen shot. I just didn’t have the app open when I was typing that comment.

    I’m going to give it another try, but I keep coming back to TweetDeck. I like being able to swipe between Timeline, Replies, and DMs. 

    • Anonymous

      same. I’m hoping for push notifs next.

  • finally!! Both updates that I’d greatly would love!!

    First 1, Loving the new Feautures!

  • i’ve been using the official twitter for some time. enjoy it.  tried the 3rd party apps and frankly im not the power twitter user most are so simplicity is fine for me.

  • I still prefer Plume. Does everything I want and very well. Not to mention it looks great

    • Same here.

    • Still rockin Seesmic: only client I’m aware of that still allows RT of protected accounts! They’ll probably turn that off soon enough though…. Unless the official app gets mention and hashtag auto-complete it’s unlikely I’ll switch.

      While push is extremely nice, I don’t use twitter nearly as much as fb. I only have it alert me of mentions at this point. Also, the ability to simultaneously post to twitter and fb from Seesmic is invaluable. That said, Seesmic definitely is missing some key features that I believe some of the other 3rd party apps have.

    yay, twitter…
