Ads by Google

Twitter has been very busy recently. They just launched a new profile for Twitter users which includes a very Facebook-like header photo. To go along with the new style of profiles, Twitter has also rebuilt their iPad application from the ground up.

Twitter’s new profiles are all about emphasizing pictures. The new header allows Twitter users to feature a certain photo that is important to them. On the iPhone, iPad, and Android photo streams will appear below a users most recent tweets. You can swipe through the thumbnails right there, and when you see one that looks interesting, you can tap it and see it in full screen.

Twitter says, “Twitter for iPad brings you closer to what’s happening all over the world, and makes it easy to keep up with the news you need to read, the photos you want to see and the people you follow.” This sounds like a fancy way to say that the app looks and performs better than it did before.

The core functionality of the app remains similar, but it certainly looks a lot better than the previous version. It integrates especially nicely with the new placement of photo streams and header photos on the new profiles.

The Home screen looks a lot better and it certainly has some cool new functions. You can view photos, videos, and web summaries directly from your timeline. You can tap them and view them in full screen easily.

Overall, Twitter did not reinvent the wheel with this update, but they definitely brought some cool new features to the table that should make die-hard Twitter users quite happy.
