Twitter for Android updated, brings Top Tweets

twitter_androidTwitter has released a small update for its official Android update. This update goes by the number 3.8 and is available for download via Google Play. The new update brings a new feature called “Top Tweets,” which shows popular tweets from important moments in the past about a search term.

“We recently introduced the ability to see older Tweets in search results. Now when you search for important Twitter moments, you may see a Top Tweet separate from the rest of the results. This Tweet is the best match for your query based on relevance and engagement. To see additional Tweets from this time period, tap on “View more from this time.” Try searching for “four more years” or “deep challenge” on your phone to see an example,” Nick Takayama, Software Engineer, Twitter noted in a blog post.

The new update has also brought in a smoother animation for pull to refresh in Discover tab along with bug fixes and improvements. There is nothing major here, but just small goodies.

Here is the full change-log:

  • Top Tweets from big moments in the past pop out when you search for a given term.
  • Discover shows a new, smoother animation when you pull-to-refresh for more content
  • Additional bug fixes and improvements
