Twitter for Android update adds new reply composer, ability to share tweets via direct message


Earlier this month, the Android and iOS Twitter clients received an update with a handful of new features, but missing from the Android update was the new reply field that iOS users received. On Wednesday, however, Twitter for Android was updated, making it easy to reply to tweets and share tweets via a direct message.

  • It’s easier to join conversations with a new reply composer
  • The share button now allows you to share a Tweet via direct message

The 4.1.3 update is available on the Play Store now.
