Twitter for Android with new conversation view

Twitter has released an update for its official Android app earlier today. The new update brings a new conversation view and better support for entry-level Android devices.

According to a blog post by the company, the company wants to make to easier to follow conversations and be a part of them. From now on, users will be able to see conversational tweets linked by a vertical line.

“You’ll see up to three Tweets in sequence in your home timeline; if you want to see more, you can tap a Tweet to see all the replies, including those from people you don’t follow,” Twitter noted. You can check out more in this video.

Apart from this new conversation interface, Twitter has also improved the experience on Android smartphones with limited internal storage.

“We have improved the Twitter for Android experience on entry-level Android smartphones with limited storage, such as the Samsung Galaxy Y, HTC Explorer, Micromax Bolt, etc. For these devices, the Twitter app is now less than half the previous size, making it much faster to download and easier to install,” Twitter stated.

The updated version is now available via Google Play.
