Twitter this week updated its native iOS app for some new features. Biggest perhaps is new support for sending photos in private direct messages. The update also supports some navigation improvements for DMs.
For the first time, you can share and view photos via direct message (DM) on your mobile phone. We've also introduced a new tab in the navigation bar that makes it easy to access DMs -- they're just one tap away from wherever you are on Twitter. You can also view photos in DMs on twitter.com.
The update also brings some interface tweaks for switching between the app's Home and Discover timelines. Other improvements include notifications for new DMs, favorites, and retweets.
