See photo, Vine previews in your timeline with latest Twitter update

Twitter has updated their official app for iOS, with a bigger emphasis on conversations and media. Twitter users will now find that their timelines are a bit more visually stimulating, with photos and Vine videos now previewed in the main timeline. Just tap on the preview to expand it to the fullscreen version. These previews can be turned off in the settings.

It's also easier to join in on conversations. You can now reply, retweet, favorite, and follow someone right from the timeline without any extra steps. Many of these features have been available through several popular third-party Twitter clients for some time now, but it's nothing but good news that the official application has finally begun to catch up.

The update is available right now on the App Store. Does this make it more desirable to use for you, or are you happy enough where you are?
