Twitter app gets updated with support for 3D Touch and more

Developers are steady updating their apps to support 3D Touch, the flagship feature of the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Twitter app version 6.37.2 will bring pressure-sensitive shortcuts to the Homescreen. Check out the change log after the jump.

Firmly pressing the Twitter app icon will bring up a few quick shortcuts, we can see above, you can Search directly from the Homescreen, create a New Tweet or a New Message. Obviously this is an iPhone 6s and 6s Plus only feature but there are other changes that are available for all Twitter users…
Twitter v6.37.2 change log:
Starting today, Twitter users on iOS 9 can expect the following when they update to version 6.37.2:
– Support for 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus so that users can access New Tweet, New Message and Search without opening the Twitter app on the home screen
– Support for universal links that open directly in Twitter rather than launching Safari
– The ability to access muted and blocked accounts in Settings
– Full support for the quick reply from push notifications

Additionally:
– Videos in tweet details will autoplay the same way they do in your timeline
– You’ll have visibility of tweet text during full-screen video playback in someone’s profile
– Enjoy media swiping capability during full-screen video playback
– And finally, quoted tweets will appear as an embedded media, reducing character count
