Twitter for Android update adds new reply composer, ability to share tweets via direct message

Earlier this month, the Android and iOS Twitter clients received an update with a handful of new features, but missing from the Android update was the new reply field that iOS users received. On Wednesday, however, Twitter for Android was updated, making it easy to reply to tweets and share tweets via a direct message.

  • It’s easier to join conversations with a new reply composer
  • The share button now allows you to share a Tweet via direct message

The 4.1.3 update is available on the Play Store now.

Twitter for Android Stories July 8, 2013


Alongside the iOS and Mac update that rolled out earlier this afternoon, Twitter for Android has also been updated with several new features. Most notably, direct messages now sync across all of Twitter’s official apps (Mac, iPad, Web, Tweetdeck, mobile web, Android). Before today, if you read a direct message on your desktop, it would still be marked as unread on your phone.

  • Now when you read a Direct message it will be marked as read in all of your official Twitter apps (including,, Twitter for Mac, Twitter for iPad and TweetDeck) and vice versa.
  • As you search you can now see user avatars and clear past searches from the dropdown menu
  • Richer search results indicate when there are new Tweets for your query and show account results with bios and social context

Missing from this update is the new reply field that iOS devices got, but hopefully that feature comes sooner rather than later.  expand full story
