"Send and receive photos via DMs. "

Can't they PLEASE update the ipad design? So unacceptable that the iPhone version has gone through multiple visual changes and the ipad is still the same.

Lies! The iPad version was recently updated with Helvetica Light instead of Helvetica Regular! :)

Too little too late.

Twitter could've corned private messaging market but they have long regressed and made DM a second citizen. After watching the likes of WhatsApp and SnapChat (and many more) rise up in popularity, Twitter finally updates DM with lackluster UI, feature set, and no API support.

The Apple Store app is also...
