In case you've been wondering when exactly Twitter would get around to optimizing Twitter for Android on ICS devices, we now have an answer for you -- and that is right now! In fact, as noted on the Twitter blog earlier the optimized version of Twitter for Android is now available in the Android Market.

In addition to the optimizations, Twitter has also announced support immediately for the Amazon Kindle Fire as well as forth coming support for the Barnes & Noble NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet. Also of import is that you can swipe a tweet to reply, retweet, share or view profiles.

Twitter is available now for the Kindle Fire while owners of the Barnes & Noble NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet will have to wait until Feb. 23 for the apps to show up in the Barnes and Nobile Nook Store.

Twitter for Android gets some ICS love, support for the Kindle Fire, Nook Color and Nook Tablet


Hopefully soon, but I'm waiting for Carbon as well. I hope Twitter updates their app to comply with ICS guidelines and make use of the action bar. Them and Facebook.

Yes! Carbon or this new app I've seen called "boid" looks promising. (I'm in no way affiliated just excited for a twitter app that looks decent on my galaxy nexus)

I hadn't used my twitter app in a few days, but unless I'm mistaken the scrolling is significantly smoother on my nexus s.

Updated fine on my Galaxy Nexus but when I go to the market on my ASUS Transformer Prime it only shows me the old version (January 4th). What's up with that?
