If you haven’t abandoned Twitter’s official Android app yet (it’s actually gotten quite good over the past few months), you’ll be glad to know there’s an upgrade waiting for you in the Google Play Store. This latest version adds some very basic image editing tools. You’ll be able to specify a crop at either square or wide aspect ratios, as well as rotate the image as you see fit. It’s no Snapseed, but if you only want to make a couple of quick framing adjustments before posting then this should work out quite well.
Twitter has also made it so that you’ll always see something new when you pull the timeline down to refresh, even if that “something new” isn’t coming from any of your followers. They’ll pull in trends, recommended Tweets and more at the top so you can explore other topics of interest and people on Twitter while you wait for your lazy friends to submit their next 140 characters.
It’s not the biggest upgrade in the world, but you’ll want to get your hands on it as soon as possible. Here’s the Google Play download link, so head over there and give it a shot at your earliest convenience.
