Twitter 6.0 is out with new design, DM photo-sharing and more

Twitter has updated its official iOS client today, bringing the app to version 6.0. The update is a fairly significant one, bringing about a new look and feel for the app, as well as photo-sharing for direct messages, improved search and more.

The new look pushes the UI of the Twitter app further into iOS 7 territory. There’s more white spacing—the menu bar at the bottom is now all white— and texts and graphics seem flatter. And Twitter has added various other enhancements…

Here’s the 6.0 change log:

New design.
- Refreshed look and feel. Home, Activity and Discover now available by swiping in Timelines. Easier access to DMs.
Share photos in Direct Messages.
- Send and receive photos via DMs.
Notifications from your network.
- Choose to view replies, retweets, and favorites from only the people that you follow.
Search got even easier.
- Access tweets from people you follow and near you, directly from search results.
Safari Reading List support
- Save web articles to read later with Safari Reading List

I actual really like the design tweaks Twitter has made today, and I especially like that they’ve simplified the menu bar. Where as before it read Home-Connect-Discover-Me, now it reads Timelines-Notifications-Messages-Me. Much more clear.

If you’re interested, you can find the latest version of Twitter, for both iPhone and iPad, in the App Store for free. Also, if you’re not already, be sure to follow iDB on Twitter so you can get notifications for new posts, giveaways and much more.

    I’ve come back to the Twitter app, after being a Tweetbot user for quite a long time & I’m loving it so far (: It’s come a long way compared to what I remember it being.

    They removed Image Previews… Why didn’t you say anything about this major feature removed? It is the major reason ppl buy Tweetbot…

    • Emmanuel Perez

      They didn’t! Maybe the setting on your device is off

    • Hermès Vainstar Chu

      you can turn it on within the twitter app settings

        First thing I checked.. On the previous version I saw the option but it didn’t do anything. Now it is not even there. I’m on a fresh iPadMini2.

      • Hermès Vainstar Chu

        not sure about the ipad version but the option is on the iphone version, just checked

      • jack

        The option shows on iPhone but not on iPad (just confirmed). I wonder why

  • Ben

    im sure I’ve already had this for a couple weeks

  • Mohsin

    Nice update. Even on iOS 6 twitter has iOS 7 look.

  • Cameron Nelms

    They added Multiple accounts to it too,
    unless that was in earlier versions also

    • Mohsin

      It was there before.

    • Hermès Vainstar Chu

      it has always been there

  • Nirvana

    I miss the skeumophic icon and its UI design!

  • Peter

    How come mine is still black on the bottom and isn’t white?

    • Mohsin

      Completely remove and reinstall the app. It might help to fix it :)

  • Amanda

    How do you log out of this new one?

    • jayz esperat

      Go to your profile then click the icon NEXT to the wrench(settings) then when you see your account, swipe it to the left then press delete. Sorry for my grammar ^^
