The Twitter app for Android devices got a substantial update today, adding a suite of much-needed features.
Available now, the free to download micro-blogging application brings with it the ability to get Twitter updates even when users aren’t in the app.
This is simply a matter of users choosing ‘automatic refresh’ in the settings part of their account and activating updates for ‘direct messages, tweets and mentions.
The latest version of the app also allows tweeters to log in with multiple accounts simultaneously, so there’s no need to log out to post under your work alias for instance.
Finally, you’ve also got some new-look homescreen widgets to admire, along with some unspecified bug fixes. And it wouldn’t be an update worthy of the term if there weren’t performance optimisations on board too for faster social networking on the go.
According to the Android blog, the features were added in response to feedback from users.
