Report: Major Android App Overhaul Underway For Twitter

Twitter’s Android app has been steadily improving over the past year, getting a cleaner UI and more features. According to The Verge, the Android app is getting a new set of duds. The new look is a lighter, crisper version of the Twitter app and will be available for beta testing now.


Gone are dark icons — they’ve been replaced with seven menu items listed in full text.  Additional columns include Activity, Trending and Find new people to follow. A slide out column gives users a opaque full suite of navigation that will showcase unread messages.


The app is available for beta testing and is listed as version 5.0 according to The Verge.  For more, read the full article on The Verge.
