Twitter iOS app gets better search, viewing functions
Twitter has updated its <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/twitter/id333903271?mt=8">official iOS app</a> to v5.4, making a number of improvements. Two of these revolve around search -- the app will, for example, highlight more topic and user suggestions in response to queries or entering a username or hashtag. The update also gives more weight to top tweets in search results, regardless of their age; searching for "election," for example, might bring up posts from the 2012 US Presidential campaign.<br /><br />Some views in the app have been improved, such as the webpage view, which now displays the related tweet for better context. The tweet can be hidden or returned by swiping the tray icon up or down. In conversations, meanwhile, the app now shows all the replies to a given tweet, and under the Connect tab, blocking a user will cause all their tweets to disappear immediately. Discover's pull-to-refresh command has been given a smoother animation.

Other changes include the addition of traditional Chinese, and iOS 6 logout support. Twitter has lastly stripped support for three video upload services: Mobypicture, Vodpod, and Posterous.
