Twitter for Android updated with expandable tweets, push notifications


Twitter for Android just got a nice little update that takes advantage of Twitters ever expanding experiment with expandable tweets and more. In version 3.3, any tweet linking to a site that is currently partnered up with Twitter (including the likes of The Atlantic, Vimeo, and Kickstarter) can be expanded to reveal a preview or content such as videos originating at the link. It’s a great addition considering the limited screen real estate a mobile device provides, allowing you to make sure you really want to navigate away from the Twitter app by scoping out content at a glance.

To go along with expandable tweets, Twitter has also introduced push notifications for any user stream you choose. Simply head to a user profile and turn them on, and soon you will receive live updates pushed to your device. The feature more or less replaces the old process of having tweets sent via SMS. Also enhanced is search autocomplete, which should make it easier than ever to track down persons of interest.

The new version of Twitter can be found in the Google Play Store now. Head on over to the link below to grab it.
