Twitter App Update Makes Photo Sharing Even Easier & Lets Users Proof Tweets Before Going Live
A new Twitter app update has rolled out to both iOS and Android platforms, making it even easier to share photos, locations and to see how your Tweets will look before sending. By skipping a few previous steps, users can now Tweet out a photo in under six seconds:

While you can Tweet in under six seconds, it’s a bit hard to catch the main upgrades. Included in the new version is the ability for users to see the full photo to be tweeted, not just a cropped thumbnail. Additionally, when a user now clicks on the photo button in the Twitter app, they’ll be able to scroll down instantly to see all the gallery photos.
A nice upgrade has also been applied to this app for users that operate multiple accounts. In the last update a better account switching feature was released, and in this version a full display will be shown before pushing the Tweet live. Users will now see their avatar and username to ensure that no errant Tweets are send to incorrect accounts.
A few other updates to the app include location tagging directly from the Tweet box and richer notifications for the Android notifications drawer.
