Twitter has just released an update to its official iOS app featuring a substantial change.
In version 6.25.1 of the app, you’ll probably notice that Twitter has officially retired the Discover and Activity sections and moved trends to the Search part of the app. Those changes make a lot of sense as many newer users were unaware of what could be found in Discover.
A Twitter blog post also explains how the social networking giant will offer more information about trending topics:
We know that trends aren’t always self-explanatory, so now you’ll see a description below each trend. Since trends tend to be abbreviations without context, like #NYFW, a description will make it clear that this trend is about New York Fashion Week. The new trends experience may also include how many Tweets have been sent and whether a topic is trending up or down.
The update also makes it easier for users to add their own comment to other people’s tweets.
Twitter is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
