How to quickly access drafts in Twitter for iOS

If you use Twitter for iOS on either your iPhone or iPad, you've probably had a time where you had a tweet fail and tell you it has been saved to your drafts. Whether that reason was spotty service or something else, you will need to try and resend it at a later time. Drafts also doubles as a nice place to jot down thoughts for a later time if you don't have time to interact with followers right that second.

Instead of hopping through several menus, here's how to access the drafts section of Twitter for iPhone and iPad in only one tap:

How to edit your Twitter profile with Twitter for iPhone and iPad

If you use the official Twitter app for iPhone and iPad, you hopefully have some profile information set up so users can see a quick bio about you as well as a photo.

iOS 7 vs. Instagram vs. Google+ vs. Twitter: Black & White photo filter comparison

I recently previewed the new Camera app Apple will be releasing alongside iOS 7 this fall, and one of the things that stood out for me the most was not so much the inclusion of built-in photo filters - everyone seems to be adding those these days - but the subtly and restraint shown in which filters Apple chose to include. Not only aren't there any tilt-shifts, frames, borders, or vignettes, but there's nothing overly aggressive about Apple's selection in any way. How does that compare to current king of photo sharing, Instagram, and to the other big social photo sharing services, Google+ and Twitter?

Time for those six second 'selfies' with latest Vine update

If all those Instagram 'selfies' just isn't enough for you, then the latest Vine update for iOS has you covered. Until now, the social mini-video sharing service has limited budding film makers to using the rear camera. The update pushing out today in the App Store adds to the toolbox the front facing camera, so you can film yourself doing, well whatever you can do in six seconds. It's real simple to flick between the two cameras, just as it is in the main iOS camera app, with a single button on screen to tap.

Twitter's evolution from a tech network to a mainstream mashup

When Twitter started out it was used almost exclusively by geeky tech types, first as a way to stay connected at conferences, and later as a general water cooler to keep in touch, network and exchange ideas, and blow off some steam. Today, Twitter is a massive mainstream mashup where many if not most users #hashtag every second word, follow hundreds of real-world celebrities, almost never use direct messages, but actually, really, truly do use the Discover tab. Matthew Panzarino from The Next Web, an early-days user, decided to start a new account some seven years later and see what the modern, far more populous Twitter felt like for first time users.

An inside look at Apple Anonymous and retail employee attempts to be both secret and social

Even outside Cupertino, in the massive retail division of Apple, secrecy is a deeply held value. Yet people are, by nature, social animals, and platforms like Twitter and even Google+, filled with friends and family, are in many cases just too big to ignore. Some simply draw up a firewall, never mentioning anything not already public knowledge about their employer or their employment, and focusing on the non-Apple aspects of their lives. Others, however, want to use places like Twitter as a way to blow off company steam -- as a place to bitch about their jobs. Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac has taken a look at that side of the Apple/Twitter equation:
