Twitter has just updated its Android client with improved scrolling and network performance, as well as lots of bug fixes.
The application's user interface has been polished and a new feature called Swipe shortcut allows users to tweet in their home timeline to reply, retweet, favorite or share it.
In addition, the new feature provides users with the possibility to view the Twitter user's profile without the need to leave their timeline.
The latest update also includes a certain confirmation dialog for “Find friends” notification, which makes it easier for users to find their friends when they wish to upload their contacts' email addresses and phone numbers.
Other changes of the update includes: improved support for Ice Cream Sandwich devices, security improvements and support for two more languages (Filipino and Simplified Chinese).
Twitter is now available as a free download in the Android Market and it should be fully compatible with all devices running Android 2.1 and up.
