Confirmed: New Twitter App Has Content Previews, Search Autocomplete, and Enhanced Notifications

Posted Jul 11, 2012

Yesterday I wrote an article about how the new Twitter iPhone app update will have content previews, search autocomplete, and enhanced notifications.  That news has been confirmed by Twitter in a blog post today.

Expanded Tweets

Tweets on mobile the Android and iPhone can be expanded.  “We?ve added several new partners like MLB and C-SPAN to a diverse and growing list of media sources. Starting today, you can also expand Tweets on Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android. When you tap a Tweet linking to a Kickstarter project, for example, you can play its video directly from the Tweet details view in your app,” said Twitter

Search Autocomplete

The new Twitter app has search autocomplete so that you can see more suggestions when searching for people.  The autocomplete includes real names and @usernames.

Notifications

It has always been possible to receive SMS messages about your favorite Twitter accounts, but now you can receive specific notifications about people that you follow whenever they send a tweet or retweet. You can turn on push notifications for tweets for any user through the action button on their profile.
