Twitter for iOS Updated with Search and Discover Redesign

Twitter today updated its iPhone and Android apps and its mobile website, introducing a redesigned Discover tab and a streamlined search experience.

The Discover tab now houses a single stream of Tweets, Trends, and Activities, rather than segregated sections. A dedicated search button has been added to the top of the app next to the tweet button, allowing for easier searches, and the Connect tab has been improved.

Here’s a full list of the changes:
-Instantly access great content with improvements to search and Discover on iPhone.
-Discover delivers a single stream of Tweets, Trends, Activity and accounts to follow.
-Pull to refresh or keep scrolling to see more content.
-Search now shows the most relevant mix of people, Tweets and photos.
-It’s also easier to use search with one button at the top of the app.
-You can see your five most recent searches and tap them to redo the search, or you can clear your recent search history.
-Links instantly open web pages when you tap URLs in your stream.
-Performance improvements make launch times faster, especially for older iOS devices.
-Connect shows interactions like new followers, retweets and mentions by default. You can switch to “view mentions only” in settings.

Would be nice if they updated it so it wasn't such a pita to check multiple accounts.

I assume they're enforcing the same 100000-user token cap on their app that they impose on other Twitter apps.

Finally I can delete all my dubious searches without having to reinstall the app. :)

I still think they need to do more work on people discovery though to allow searches based on location, interests and keywords.

This new search functionality seems to think it's a good idea to mix in irrelevant or old results.

What a complete mess. Why can't I just get a list of results?

Think that is more to do with your phone than the app.


Did you not read the second line?

Took 10 seconds from opening the app to showing my timeline on my 3GS (considered an older device), how exactly is it faster?

Tweetbot took 2-3 seconds from launch to timeline.....
