Twitter is one of the largest social networking entities on the internet, and apparently the company wants to know which apps you’re using on your devices.
While many different apps were updated on Wednesday, September 18 to follow in sync with the public release of iOS 8, some companies waited, like Twitter. The company has officially updated their social networking app, though, to take advantage of some iOS 8 features, and put a bigger focus on profiles.
While Amazon was busy announcing their first smartphone, with a bunch of 3D-trickery for good measure, Twitter was quietly announcing something a bit different. In the world of Twitter and image sharing, people have had to resort to using different services to upload animated GIFs to the social network, instead of being able to upload them directly to the service from first-party apps (or even the website). If you’re a fan of the animated story tellers, but hate using third-party apps to upload them, then you’ll be happy with Twitter’s official changes today.
Twitter recently rolled out the ability to mute accounts, letting you mute tweets from someone you follow. In this post, we tell you how to mute tweets and retweets from annoying users using the Twitter iOS app.
