Twitter for Android

Fire up your Android device because the Twitter application has gotten better. An update for Twitter for Android was released Wednesday that brings a few welcome enhancements to the application.

The first new addition is push notification support. This means you will be alerted every time you get a mention or message sent to you. You can customize push notifications to only alert you only when you’re mentioned by people you follow, or from anyone on Twitter that mentions you. More popular Twitter users will most likely choose not to be alerted for every mention.

The application also allows for multiple Twitter accounts to be logged in at the same time. Imagine having easy access to both you and your dog’s Twitter page! The Twitter widget has also been tweaked.
