Twitter photo sharing            Twitter recommendations

Pull-to-refresh on an empty timeline will offer people and topics to follow

Building on photo enhancements in previous releases, Twitter is working to improve and streamline the photo sharing experience. When uploading photos from the official app, beyond the normal set of filters and effects you now have the simple options of applying pre-defined square or wide crops, as well as rotating. Further, if you upload a picture of people it will give you a reminder to mention your friends in the associated tweet.

Photos aside, Twitter is also expanding its recommendations to show up in your timeline. As if its increased pushiness of recommendations weren't enough, now when you pull-to-refresh the feed and there are no new tweets to display, it will pull down a panel showing more recommendations. You'll see suggested users to follow, trending topics and specific tweets to check out. If you're using Twitter in the U.S., you'll also see sports, TV and news events in this area.

You can snag the latest version of the Twitter app from the Play Store link above.

Well to be fair, I use the twitter app only for dm's because reasons.

Its getting more intrusive.
I use it like once a week, and am thinking of just using the web interface.
I really have nothing I use twitter for on a routine basis.

I'm so glad I learned about Falcon Pro. The workaround way of downloading it is pretty easy to figure out. It's so much better than the official app.

Why do people complain about this app so much? It's perfectly fine. I don't see what's so wrong with it? As long as it does what it supposed to, I don't see what the big deal is.

Same here. I use Twitter for, well.... Tweeting. I can do everything I possibly could want to do with it, and the UI isn't as bad as people like to think.

I do have a complain.
Everytime i tweet a photo from my phone, its cropped adn resized to a 250px image.
It sucks, when i see photos on the web interface, they just look ugly.
I just noticed that, any help ?

Official app is just rubbish. Falcon Pro for me with Tweedle as backup.

I'm not having major issues with the official Twitter app and I stay away from all that unnecessary app token drama. I'm not too happy about Twitter getting pushier with recommendations, but it isn't that much different from Google forcing sharing on Google+ (by pushing +1s and YouTube comments into your feed) instead of letting it flourish organically.
