Twitter Enhances Conversations in Android App, Boosts Performance on Weaker Devices

Twitter

A new update for the official Twitter app hit Google Play today, full of new little features and fixes that greatly improve the app in the eyes of its developers. The big change you will see is a new “blue line” that connects conversations that are taking place in between people you follow. For example, in the photo we posted above, you can see two people I follow go back and forth about blue lines, and you know they are replying to each other thanks to the blue line. We wouldn’t’ say this feature was necessary, but it is what it is. 

In addition, the app has been optimized for “entry-level” devices, essentially becoming less intensive, allowing the weaker phones to handle the app. There are new notification settings, as well as the ability to report tweets as abusive or spam.

To see the full changelog, check below.

What’s New:

  • A blue line in your home timeline indicates a conversation between people you follow
  • The first Tweet in the conversation now appears above the most recent reply
  • Tap to see all of the replies, even from people you don’t follow
  • Optimized for entry-level Android smartphones
  • Report Tweets as abusive or spam
  • New notification settings
  • Bug fixes for direct messages, login verification and more

      I would wait till october or so, Just to see the new nexus, and The Rumor is another Motorola Device is still coming this year, maybe a hero/ Flagship device, allegedly says one of the writers at AndroidCentral who hinted it in an article called “Wait to buy the Moto X”

    Twitter? You mean the Falcon Pro’s little (inappropriate word for female dog)

    • Chippah

      Falcon pro was great until the token fiasco..
      and the dev workaround sucks and is a major pain in the ass.

      • Droid Ronin

        That’s true. I finally got Falcon Pro up and running on my Moto X with the token workaround, but if I ever wipe my device, I’m just gonna use Carbon next time around.

    Idk about this update being big news, but has anyone tried out the new version of Maxthon browser?

    I could have sworn that I had seen this blue line thing in a previous update only to disappear later.
