Twitter updates security and search function app
Twitter updated its Android and iOS apps with new features that enhance security and photo function. The updates are now available on Google Play Store and iTunes Store.
The updates let you enroll in login verification and approve login requests directly from your mobile app. Now, in addition to the SMS-based login verification that was released in May, you can use login verification without relying on text messages.
Twitter’s two-step verification is similar to others offered by Google and LinkedIn. Verification codes are stored online and available if a phone is lost or broken; the code is the "second step" in making sure someone unwanted can't log in to your account, with the first step being your password.
Updates also includes a “View more photos” link that leads to a photo gallery of related images and is present in search results. Before, you need to swipe through thumbnails one by one.
For iOS app in addition to display on search, photo galleries will appear on user profiles, so you can view all of someone’s photos in one place. Apple users can also create, edit and organize their Twitter lists and witness a faster launch when the app is launched.
