In addition to updating its application for the iOS App Store, Twitter has updated its Android app with a similar feature set. The updated Android version includes an improved, more timely search and Top Tweets experience, an improved Discover tab, and an extended conversation view that allows users to see more tweets. Unlike with the iOS application, Twitter did not remove MobyPicture, VodPod, and its own Posterous as video uploading services through Android. Release notes:

This update includes several improvements and bug fixes.
1. Top Tweets from big moments in the past pop out when you search for a given term. When you tap a Top Tweet in search results you can see more Tweets about that topic during that time
2. Never miss out on a conversation: see all the replies to a Tweet in the details view
3. Discover shows a new, smoother animation when you pull-to-refresh for more content
4. Additional bug fixes and improvements
