It is still in recently history that Twitter launched the most up to date variant of their app for iOS and Android. The app which provided Twitter users to stay connected got a slight makeover and it wasn’t exactly as expected. Consumers have an unusual complaint about the product that it is in fact taking more information from their smart phones than they thought it would, and acting rather much like spyware.
The issue at hand is not the notion that this is a glitch in the software but rather an intentional addition to the app as part of its features. Following people you know is much easier when you simply click on the Discover tab, look for the Activity option. Once located you’ll notice it consists of continuous updates which is constantly tracking what’s happening around people you follow. For example it gives you an update of whatever they have “favor-ited” or re tweeted. Furthermore through the new application you can even have a look at which accounts your friend/ person you follow has added or added to a list. This is some of the information you can uncover about the person you wish to inquire about under the Activity tab.
There is yet another story tapping option also present in the new interface of the app. this allows you to tap into a featured story or an article of news there is on Twitter, you can view the general trends around it and also have a look at related information or articles. Once you have the featured article you can read right through all of it or participate in the discussion about it. If it was something you would like to get back to and read later you can favorite it. Some are of the belief that such functions can be subject to spyware and more so that updates such as the auto complete feature are results of spyware. There is now the ability to go straight to the profile when searching for a name or place on the search option.
However other than the fact that the new version seems to be slightly under the influence of spy ware there is not much change that the users are too glad to see. There is the addition of the Discover tab together with the Notification and Search box. The ease of use associated with the app seems to have remained the same; complaints regarding how it could have been made into a more efficient design can be heard. The level of connectivity between people has certainly gone up with the improvements but that may not be what the users wanted. For instance a major issue is how the matter of retweeting was looked over, as this option is not available on the mobile version. Users can attempt to share a particular post by copying it editing it and then uploading but the same article of content cannot be edited and then forward as a retweet. There is another fix and that is to copy and forward the tweet as a quote. So you could take your own tweet. Copy it as a quote and forward it with the changes, separate from the original. This is no good for editing or improving an older tweet.
Changes in this update of the Twitter app don’t seem to have brought about to much good, rather a sense of doubt amongst users. It is offering tools that make it a better social media service and seem to not be focusing much on other features that are required from an app such as Twitter.
