Twitter today have released a new and updated version of the Twitter App for the Android operating system (which goes live today the 14th of July), which has a host of updates in keeping with the website’s redesign and a few extra features to boot.
The biggest change in the Twitter App for Android update is the addition of an automatic push notification service that will automatically notify you when you get a mention or a message through the service, regardless of how often you’ve asked the app to check twitter.
Tweetards can now stay completely up to date and have the latest information, mentions and direct messages come straight to their phone without having to wait those extra seconds for an automatic refresh.
The feature itself has been available on the Apple iOS software for some time but now Google Android OS users will now get a taste of the action as the update has gone live on the Android Market as of now.
Some of the other features include multiple accounts management within the app, which again was released already in the Apple version of the application. In a statement from the Twitter blog the company stated:
“Today we’re releasing the latest version of Twitter for Android. It includes some of the most commonly requested features from our users”
