Twitter for Android received a noteworthy update this afternoon that includes new photo sharing improvements, along with real-time stories at the top of your timeline after pull-to-refreshes. For photo uploads and shares, you will see a cropping tool to get your aspect just right, an option to rotate your photo, and a reminder (if there are people in your photo) to @ mention them.
Outside of the photo news, Twitter is also introducing real-time recommendations should you refresh and not have any new Tweets to check out. In other words, if you pull-to-refresh and see no new Tweets, Twitter will show you trending topics or suggestions for accounts to follow, plus TV, sports, and news event updates.
The update lands exclusively on Android today, with iOS availability in the works.
