Mobile app of the day: Twitter

A strong presence on Twitter is pretty much a requirement in terms of the business world these days, with clients keen to use the social tool to connect with providers of goods and services as much as with friends. Twitter apps are plentiful, and if you are shopping around then the official Twitter one is worth a look.

A recent update to the app for both iOS and Android includes enhancements to photo handling including the ability to capture photos from within the app, making it easy to mention users when you tweet a photo. There are also improvements to photo cropping and rotation. Because so much of what we do on social media is visually rich now, these are important improvements.

This image management update helps make the Twitter app one of our favourites for tweeting. The crisp clean user interface helps too, of course. And yes, it goes without saying that you can handle multiple accounts, so those of us who are Twitter power-users are well catered for.
