Twitter Updates iOS App with iPad 2 Camera Support, More Bug Fixes

The official Twitter app for iOS was updated a few minutes ago to include support for the iPad 2’s camera. A pretty much obvious update considering the camera is one of the biggest features in the new device, and it didn’t take long for Twitter to support it. A new camera icon has found its way in the “new tweet” compose box; you can upload media from your library or shoot a new photo or video with the iPad and send it off to your favorite online service. The UI is quite nice, and luckily enough this update doesn’t bring any #dickbar to the timeline.

Twitter 3.3.2 also includes fixes: the developers have disabled “significant location change monitoring that was causing compass to appear constantly when in app” and the changelog mentions “bug Fixes from user reported crashes” as well. We hope this update fixes the annoying DM bug too, the one that kept your messages unread on each app relaunch / crash.

You can find Twitter for iOS in the App Store here.
