Twitter for Android updated with in-line photos and Vine videos, quick-actions in the timeline


Twitter for Android was updated today with support for in-line photos in the main timeline view rather than using photo links. Vine videos now show up in the timeline as well, although it seems other video services will still require you to tap a link first.

The update also adds buttons to quickly reply, retweet, or favorite a tweet without having to swipe or tap it first. The new version of Twitter for Android is available for free in the Google Play Store now.
