Twitter has launched updates to its iPhone and Android apps, adding new a handful of new features.
Now when you add a photo to a tweet, you’ll get a full preview, as opposed to a cropped version.
Twitter’s Misha Lushin writes on the company blog, “We’ve also redesigned the experience to make it easy to share a photo from your camera roll: simply click the photo icon on the bottom right corner of the Tweet box. With fewer steps needed to share photos, you can more easily share what’s going on in your life and quickly return to marveling over that gorgeous sunset.”

When you compose a tweet, you will now see your avatar and username, and if you tweet from multiple accounts, it’s now easier to select which on eyou want to use (by tapping the avatar).
“You can still add or remove your location from individual Tweets right from the Tweet box,” says Lushin. “Tagging your location is a handy way to save characters and provide context.”
Android users will now get more details about interactions on Twitter in the Notifications Drawer. If you swipe the notification, you can expand it, and see more details.
Twitter has also removed the borders around timelines on the iPhone app, as it had previously on Android. This way, tweets fill the screen.
