Twitter for iOS updated, improves search, removes three video services

Twitter for iOS has been updated, improving search and removing the capability to upload to certain video services. Twitter for iOS will now give you more user and topic suggestions for your search terms based on what happens in real time. You will also receive these suggestions when adding a username or hashtag to a tweet. Additionally, Top Tweets from major past events will pop up when you search terms related to that event.

This update also adds some smaller features. Viewing a webpage within an app, you can now pull the tweet with the link to the page up from the bottom of the screen for additional context. Conversations in the Details view now contain every reply to tweets in the conversation. Blocking a user in the app causes their tweets to disappear immediately.

Twitter also removed support for video uploads to three services. Mobypicture, Vodpod, and Posterous are gone from the app. No reason for the removal of these services was given in Twitter’s blog post on the update, though Posterous is shutting down soon. The removal of these services leave Telly and yFrog as the only video options left in the iOS app.
