On Tuesday, Twitter rolled out a refreshed app for Apple’s iPad.
Twitter product manager Sung Hu Kim gave the Twitter world notice of the facelift earlier today.
“We’ve rebuilt the app from the ground up to make it fast, beautiful and easy to use,” Kim wrote. “Twitter for iPad brings you closer to what’s happening all over the world, and makes it easy to keep up with the news you need to read, the photos you want to see and the people you follow.”
With iOS device owners showing a high rate of interest in social networks, the investment of time and resources into the new iPad app appears poised to pay off in a big way for the microblogging giant.
Tweets come alive in the new Twitter for iPad. Expand Tweets with a single touch to see beautiful photos, rich videos and web page summaries right in your timeline. Dive into the content with another tap to see the photo, play the video or read links from the web in fullscreen mode.
“Express yourself by adding a beautiful new header photo to your new profile,” the post goes on to explain. “It appears consistently above your Tweets on iPad, mobile apps and twitter.com, and you can change it anytime. You can also remember the moments you’ve shared on Twitter by swiping through your photo stream on your profile or tapping photos to go fullscreen.”
