twittericonTwitter today updated its iOS app to version 5.9, adding an improved login verification feature that works with Twitter’s two-factor authentication procedure (which debuted earlier this year), replacing the phone number portion with in-app alerts.

With login verification enabled in the Settings menu, Twitter users will get a push notification on their phones alerting them of any login attempts, which can then be approved. Login verification includes international support and provides details on location and browser for anyone who accesses a Twitter account with the setting turned on. The app also provides backup codes in case a phone is lost.

In addition to new security features, the update brings user photo galleries, new options for photo viewing photo searches, and improvements to lists.

Now you can protect your account with login verification. This is a new form of two-factor authentication that allows you can turn on and manage directly from your app.

Also in this release:
- View anyone's photos in a beautiful gallery when you visit their profile and tap ‘View more photos’
- Photo search results can also be viewed in a gallery
- Enjoy several improvements to lists: create new lists and edit your existing lists; manage titles and descriptions; add or remove members
- Other bug fixes and improvements

Twitter for iOS is a free app that can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

This also improves the launch time. Previously on my 4S it would take quite a while to display tweets when launched.

However, even though iOS 7 beta 5 fixed the issue with the buttons on the previous app, this update causes them to behave how they did in Beta 4.
