Twitter for iOS has been updated to version 5.12, adding in-stream previews of Twitter photos and Vine videos that are displayed directly in a user's main timeline. Full screen media content can be accessed via a tap, which is an improvement over the app's previous functionality, which required users to tap a link to view video and image content.
In addition to adding in-line media viewing, the update also brings new quick action buttons allowing users to reply, retweet, or favorite a tweet directly within the timeline.
This update includes enhancements to Tweets in the home timeline.
Be a part of the moment.
- Tweets with Twitter photos, Vine videos, and other select content now show a preview in your home timeline. Tap the image to reveal the full screen version. Tweet a picture without text, and let the image say it all.
Joining the conversation just got easier.
- You can reply, retweet, favorite, or follow someone straight from a Tweet in your home timeline.
Note: You can switch off Tweet previews in "Settings"
