  • Twitter has expanded its features today with an update to the Android app, that will show you an article summary and photo preview card when you search for a tweet. The same previews are available when you browse using the Discover tab and they work without having to tap the post first.

    The update allows you to previews photos and articles summaries without a tap in Discover and the search results. The design is meant for mobile interaction and brings the content of the tweet closer to the user. In the search area, the photos from relevant results will also appear at the top of the stream, apparently. Twitter also introduced a new version of Discover for mobile, with a release that involves a redone backend and UI, in order to take advantage of the Twitter cards.

    The Twitter cards allow the user to see Tweets in Discover, with links to the news and photos, instead of the story previews that weren’t interactive. The users will also see content from cards partners shown as previews in the stream. This means that you also get headlines and publication names for story summaries, plus photo previews, not just shortened URLs. And finally, Twitter launched the ability to email a Tweet directly from twitter.com, a function that is rolling out over the next weeks. The tweet can be emailed to anyone, Twitter user or not. You can get the new and improved Twitter from here.
