Twitter Streamlines Search, URL Features In Latest App Update

One of the main problems with the Twitter iOS app is that when you try to click on a link, it leads you to a separate page that expands the tweet where you can actually go to the link by tapping the URL.

A new app update released today changes that along with other improvements to the Twitter mobile experience.

Esteban Kozak, director of product management for Twitter, wrote on the blog: “This release provides a single stream of content in each tab, so you can better find what’s most important to you when you’re on the go.”

Besides making URLs go directly to the website, the new Twitter app update also streamlines the search option by making it work anywhere within the app. The Discover section of the Twitter app includes all aspects — Tweets, Activity, Trends and suggested users — in one stream.
