In March last year, Twitter introduced the ability to view and post up to four photos at a time in its official iOS app. In June, Tweetbot, the other popular iOS Twitter client developed by Tapbots, followed suit.
Now, it’s Twitterrific’s turn to offer the aforementioned ability.
Thanks to its latest update, Twitterrific now lets you attach up to four images to a tweet at a time. Of course, it now also lets you view multiple images attached to a tweet, allowing you to tap individual thumbnails on the timeline and swipe between images to view them directly.
The latest update to Twitterrific also offers extended media support in the timeline, including support for previewing rich media from different types of links, viewing Twitter-hosted animated GIFs, and watching videos from Vine, Instagram, Moby, and other services.
The new version of Twitterrific also includes the following improvements and bug fixes:
• Instagram photos now open in the in-app photo viewer
• Open a timeline of a user’s mentions from their avatar’s tap-and-hold menu
• Tapping a media link in a tweet opens the source page (App Store links, etc)
• Tapping a media preview or avatar no longer selects the tweet
• Sending links to Pocket now attaches the source tweet
• Various UI improvements to the in-app photo viewer
• Tapping cancel now closes image picker popups when editing profile
• Images no longer falsely show up as a broken link when opened
• Fixed an issue with sending tweets and conversations to Storify
• Photo viewer no longer gets into a state where it can’t be closed
• Fixed an issue with sharing tweets with Evernote

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 8.0 or later, Twitterrific is available on the App Store for free, with in-app purchases offered for unlocking additional features.
Twitterific for Mac is also available on the Mac App Store, but it hasn’t been updated in over a year. Apparently, its development has been stalled by Twitter’s token limit on third-party clients, which is presumed to have also caused the recent removal of Tweetbot for Mac from the Mac App Store.
