Apple Watch: Twitter talks up innovation

Twitter’s President of Global Revenue has talked up the social network’s tie-in with the new Apple Watch, explaining how he sees the company’s app working on the upcoming timepiece.

Adam Bain, speaking at the CTIA event across The Pond, said that checking Twitter on an Apple Watch is 'natural', seeing as looking at your wrist for the time and trawling through tweets on mobile devices is already second nature for consumers.

Twitter’s access to Apple’s new WatchKit developer tools was a key feature during the device’s unveiling. Tweets can be viewed on the screen and images can be enlarged to fill the entire display.

The Apple Watch uses a special dial, called a Digital Crown, to control menus and apps on your wrist.

It has a heart rate monitor and can access maps and photos too. The flexible display can sense force as well as touch. Siri is also backed-in for voice control smarts.

Priced at $349 across the pond, it’s due to go on sale early in 2015.
