Twitter 6.1 makes it even easier to share photos

Twitter has been updated to version 6.1, adding new options and features, including making it easier to reply with and edit photos. A couple of other improvements have been made to login verifications and discovery.

After tapping on a tweet, you can reply with a photo using the gallery icon. Twitter will now also remind you to mention your friends when you tweet a photo so you can easily share it with as many people as possible. It's also easier to edit photos now. You can crop photos by selecting your desired resolution. You can rotate your image before posting to see how it looks in your tweet. The photo view has also been improved.

Twitter has made some other improvements with version 6.1. When you pull to refresh your timeline, and no new tweets appear, you will now be shown something new, like tweets favorited by someone you follow. Tapping the banner that appears will take you to the Discover timeline for more. Additionally, if you're using login verification, you will no longer need temporary passwords to login to your device.

Twitter 6.1 is availabe for download from the App Store now.

Twitter 6.1 makes it even easier to share photos


FB just had an iPhone update. Bad reviews. Anybody get it, problems? Another good reason to not have auto app updates turned on. If my family was not on FB, I would drop it, and become a regular user of twitter. I barely use twitter, but it is really getting better, and FB is just messed up.

I decided to switch from my galaxy nexus to an iPhone 5s. I gotta say the official twitter app is much better on iPhone than it is on android. I kinda miss my falcon pro twitter app though.

Wow, it looks like twitter is beginning to take their app more serious. They will have to in order to get people to use and see those Ads in your feed.

Really impressive. But what is happening with tweetbot iPad app? The iPhone app is updated bit not the iPad one ? I've paid for it and was expecting an update long ago...

And as with all the last updates of iOS-Twitter: New features are iPhone-only. What about the iPad? Why is this remarkable fact not mentioned on iMore?

Will apps like Tweetbot need to be updated to take advantage of the new Twitter features?
