Posted by at 11:03 pm on February 10, 2011

Twitter has released new version of Twitter for Android. Twitter 2.0 looks and feels more like the other official Twitter applications and provides a more consistent experience across platforms and devices.

In the last two months, usage of Twitter for Android has doubled, and now it’s among the top five – along with twitter.com, m.twitter.com (mobile web site), Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Blackberry

UI Tweets

When you first sign in, you’ll see your timeline, along with icons along the top that let you view @mentions, messages, and lists. This layout makes it fast and simple to navigate Twitter on your Android device. Also, the @mentions tab now includes Retweets; seeing replies and Retweets in one place.

Search

Now when you search, you can find Tweets with the term you’re looking for, Tweets sent by people near your location, or people whose user names include that term. Now you can scan your address book to find which of your friends, who have chosen to be discoverable, are also on Twitter. New users will get a chance to do this when they first go through the sign-up process on the app.

Use Twitter Without Signing In

You can use Twitter for Android even if you haven’t signed in or don’t have an account. You can view trends, browse your interests and see suggested users in several categories, including fashion, entertainment and travel, or search to find out what people are saying about topics you care about, such as big sporting events. You can now also sign up for Twitter from within the app.

Download

You can download Twitter for Android from Android Market for free on devices with Android 2.1 or higher.
