Twitter Updates Mobile Experience To Complement New Card Offerings

Complementing its earlier announcement on new Twitter card options, the microblogging platform is pushing its design enhancements into overdrive with newly announced mobile updates.

And this time they’re rolling it out to Android, iPhone and that entire mobile web at the same time – though you may have to wait a little bit regardless.

As we told you earlier, Twitter cards will now allow brands to bring users directly to their app via a Tweet. And what better way to view this magnificence than threw newly updated apps?

The updated design, announced today, mostly benefits Android users as it “reflects a native Android experience: wider and taller timelines that fill the screen, a flat navigation bar, tap and hold for quick actions, and more.”

You can now quickly navigate between tabs by swiping across your screen. And as you type your Tweet or search, you’ll see username and hashtag suggestions, making it easier to connect with friends and join conversations.

And, of course, the ability to launch and install your favorite apps via tweet.

And the Twitter for iPhone and have been updated as well to show “more types of content in expanded Tweets: photo galleries, apps and product listings.” Nice.

What will they think of next?
