twitterTwitter 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"

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

What's the issue with having the "buttons" below every post?

Because it is a complete waste of space and is ugly. You don't perform actions on every tweet. They should do like every other client and only show those actions when you select that tweet (or add swipe to view actions).

And the image previews are huge. If you get two in a row in your stream you can only see about 1.5 tweets on the screen at once. Twitter really doesn't know how to develop a mobile client. Luckily there are alternatives until they kill them off.

I never got the allure of Twitter. It just seems so stupid to me.... you're wasting your time reading useless soundbites from others, and are posting idiotic details of your own life that nobody cares about at all.

I'm not enjoying this new look. They've added labels under each tweet instead of swiping to reply, retweet, favourite etc. It looks rather messy and untidy.
I'm sure I'll get used to it though!

Yeah, but can you direct message links again, or is that still a "glitch"?
