Twitter Makes Sharing Photos Easier And More Friendly, Also Adds In Real Time Stories Via The Feed

January 27, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

If you’re an avid Twitter user then you know all too well on the standing of sharing photos by way of “tweet”. While not necessarily the worst experience, Twitter saw room for improvement and to be honest we have to agree with them on the matter. Starting with today’s Twitter update for the Android app, you’ll now have the added option to crop photos, and give each picture you post a Square or wide aspect. Not only can you crop photos, but you can rotate the image as well to make sure that it fits the tweet according to your specifications. If you don’t particularly like the way that it looks the way its uploaded in, go ahead and rotate it to the left or right and see how it looks then. Once you’ve got everything looking the way you want, go ahead and post it.

As it can be all too easy to forget things sometimes, Twitter has also made sure to add in helpful little reminders to mention any friends or family that may be in the photo so they have a chance to check out your handiwork. Besides the new additions to photo upload features in your tweets, Twitter has also made it possible to recommended tweet topics and other twitter accounts to follow, much like you might see on your Google+ account now. The ability to drag down on your twitter news feed is not new in this particular update, but now, by doing so if there are no new tweets to read from people that you already follow, this is a time you would see the recommendations pop up.

While these aren’t major overhauls or changes made to the Twitter app for Android, they are certainly beneficial changes and anything that can improve the functionality or experience of an app. regardless of how big or small, is a welcomed one. Does anyone still use the Official Twitter Client? If so, how are you finding these new changes?
