Twitter has released a new version of the Android mobile client updating it to 1.0.5. The update offers several UI enhancements, including some gestures and features present in iOS version of the App.

  • Pull to Refresh: This popular feature, which was first available through our iPhone app, functions just as it sounds – when you’re at the top of your timeline, simply pull down to load new Tweets.
  • Swipe to Reveal: Swipe across a Tweet to get quick access to several options, such as viewing a user’s profile, sharing a tweet, or replying.
  • Quote a Tweet: Clicking the retweet icon now gives you the option to quote a Tweet. Of course, you can still retweet as you normally would.
  • Hi-res avatar photos


You can download this version of Twitter for Android from Android Market on devices with Android 2.1 and higher, or you can just scan the barcode below.
