Twitterrific has just been updated with new major features, at least a couple of which bring it on par with its foremost rival in the third-party Twitter app space, Tweetbot.

One such feature is support for live streaming of timelines over Wi-Fi. It’s off by default, but it can be easily enabled in Twitterrific’s settings section. When enabled, it automatically refreshes your timelines every time someone you follow posts a new tweet.

Another notable feature is support for managing lists. This lets you add or remove lists, add or remove users from lists, and edit list details and privacy settings. To create a new list, start by going to the profile of the first user you want to add to that list and select Manage in Lists in the options menu. And to edit a list, just open its timeline and tap List Options.

The new version of Twitterrific now also supports viewing of images in direct messages and copying of discussions from the share menu.
