So now, when you tap on a tweet linking to particular source for a video or article summaries, you can view the video or read the article directly from the tweet details view inside the app. The app will no longer open up your iPhone or Android device’s browser or media player app. According to Twitter, the update also now lets you discover the best tweets and photos for event experiences like This feature seems to be working for iPhone only for now. No words yet on whether it will be rolled out for Android. The next new feature of Twitter mobile app is the improvement in search autocomplete with more suggestions when searching for people. Lastly and perhaps the most important new feature of the updated Twitter app is the support for notifications for tweets.
