Twitter recently announced that it has updated its iOS, Android and mobile web applications with a tweaked user interface and new features.

"Its new design reflects a native Android experience: wider and taller timelines that fill the screen, a flat navigation bar, tap and hold for quick actions, and more," Twitter's technical lead of Android Jonathan Le explained. "You can now quickly navigate between tabs by swiping across your screen. And as you type your Tweet or search, you'll see username and hashtag suggestions, making it easier to connect with friends and join conversations."

The iOS and mobile web applications were also updated to allow for more content within each posts. In other words, you can tap a tweet and see product listings, photo galleries and apps, Le explained. If there's an app mentioned that you don't have installed, you can tap it to download the application right from Twitter.

Le said the update will be rolling out over the next several days.
