Twitter Listens and Updates iPhone App

Twitter recently announced an update to their iPhone app that made changes in a direct response to user feedback.

No More Twitter Quick Bar

To much jubilation, the Quick Bar was removed from the feed view. The release that introduced the Quick Bar created quite a stir in the Twitter app community. With minimal screen real estate, users wanted their content on the screen and not suggested content.

Retweet and Quote Tweet together at last.

The Twitter app also introduces a nice adjust to the user interface. The app now organizes the Retweet and Quote Tweet functionality into the same menu item. This change makes usability sense as twitter suggests the Quote Tweet functionality as the
best practice means to share someone’s Tweet while adding your own comments. Possibly to the dismay of Twitter most users still use the Retweet function to share and contribute, so to satisfy user adoption this user interface move works.

To access the menu item select the cycling arrows from the tweet action menu.

Under that menu item is where the user now selects the desired sharing method; Retweet or Quote Tweet.
