Twitter for iOS Updated to Allow Ability to Install, Launch Apps from Tweets

Twitter has announced it has updated its iOS app and also with some changes. For the iOS app and web, expanded tweets now show more content such as photo galleries, apps and product listings. Also, if content is shared from another mobile app (such as Flickr for example), you will be able to open the app or be asked to download it if it’s not on your device. Twitter says these updates will be rolling out over the next several days.
