Software Updates: Twitter 5.4 for iOS

March 6, 2013

Twitter 5.4 for iOS is now available. This version of Twitter App removes support for uploading videos to Posterous. That makes a lot of sense since Posterous is shutting down.

What’s New in Version 5.4
This update includes enhancements to search and other improvements.

  • As you search you’ll see more topic and user suggestions for your query, based on what’s happening in real time. You’ll also see these suggestions when adding a hashtag or username as you compose a new Tweet.
  • Top Tweets from big moments in the past pop out when you search for a given term. For example, searching for “election” might highlight Tweets from several months ago.
  • When you open a web page you can now see the related Tweet for more context. Just pull the tray icon up or down to see or hide the Tweet.
  • It’s easier to see long conversations in the Tweet details view, which now shows all of the replies to any Tweet
  • When you block a user in the app, their Tweets will instantly disappear from the Connect tab in the app
  • Pull-to-refresh in Discover shows a new, smoother animation
  • Support for traditional Chinese
  • Logout support (iOS 6 only)
  • Uploading videos vie Mobypicture, Vodpod and Posterous is no longer supported
  • Additional bug fixes and improvements
