With iOS 8 now available to iPhone users, Twitter announced a big update to profiles on these devices. In fact, the company says it’s the biggest update to profiles to date.
“Featuring a fresh design, the updated profiles focus on your bio, Tweets and photos, making it easy for you to get a glimpse into the people you care about on Twitter,” says designer Sana Rao. “You can see a bio as soon as you get to the profile — it’s no longer a swipe away. The timelines for Tweets, photos and favorites are easy to get to, and you can access them from wherever you are in that profile.”
You actually don’t have to have iOS 8 to use the new profiles. They work with iOS 7 as well, though they do utilize iOS 8’s abilities.
“And of course we’re updating the app to take advantage of iOS 8,” says Rao. “You will now be able to interact directly with push notifications from Twitter, meaning you can Retweet, favorite, follow and more, directly from these notifications if you have iOS 8.”
This brings the app more in line with what’s already available for Android in that regard.
