Twitter has updated its official iPad client app, adding additional support for tweets with images and video embedded, as well as support to view photos, videos and links from the web full-screen within the app.

Tweets come alive in the new Twitter for iPad. Expand Tweets with a single touch to see beautiful photos, rich videos and web page summaries right in your timeline. Dive into the content with another tap to see the photo, play the video or read links from the web in fullscreen mode.

Also, both the iPad and iPhone versions of Twitter have gained a new 'Header' image for user profiles that is similar to Facebook's 'Cover Photo' and will be displayed above tweets on iPad, mobile apps, and Twitter.com.

Twitter for iPad and iPhone is available free on the App Store. [Direct Link]

Whoah, they removed the option to load and display URL's while looking at your tweet, this sucks. Now it's nothing more than an enlarged iPhone app.

Thumbs down.

Well, they've destroyed yet another Twitter app. I had already been forced to switch to TweetBot on my phone (and am quite happy with it). This finally made me do the same on my iPad. Aside from a horrendous interface, trying to use multiple accounts is extra clunky.

They ruined it! There's so much dead space now. I don't understand what their deal is, do they not test these things out?!
