A new version of Tweetbot has hit the App Store. The update brings a great new version of the timeline, focused on sharing media, rather than just tweets. The new timeline displays images and videos from Vine right in-line with the tweet acting as a caption.
Tapbots’ Paul Haddad says that the media timeline exists simply because they “thought it’d be a good feature to add, as it lets people view their stream in a different way.”
Although I don’t take full advantage of the timeline functionality, I do appreciate the addition, especially now since I have started using Vine.
What’s New in Version 2.8:
– New media timeline. Scroll to the top of a timeline and switch to the new media view (next to the search box). This view displays only supported image and video tweets.
– Completely redesigned image viewer
– Tweet/status detail view now displays the number of Favs and Retweets
– Fixed Instagram Previews
– Various other bug fixes
