New verification system will help tablet and international users have a more secure Twitter account
Now you can protect your account with login verification in the app. This is a new form of two-factor authentication that you can turn on in your settings and manage through push notifications.
Also in this release:
• Enjoy a new gallery view for photos in search results
• Other bug fixes and improvements
The new login verification works with push notifications, so SMS messages (or even a phone number) are no longer required. This opens things up a bit, and now tablet users as well as international users can have a bit more security on their Twitter account.
The new photo search gallery is accessed by by choosing "view more photos" in the search results, and you'll see a nicely laid out photo grid where you can see more visual, and since we're talking photos, more relevant results. All in all an update you should take if you use the official Twitter app. Grab it at the Google Play link above.
A new bot has made its way onto Twitter and this time, it’s created by Microsoft. A new project from the Redmond company’s Research FUSE Labs, dubbed “Asky”, is described as a “project about understanding people’s motivations and satisfactions when they ask questions using Twitter hashtags”.
