Tweetbot for iOS has been updated to version 4.3. The new update brings a number of new tweaks, as well as a new feature called "Topics," which makes it much easier to conduct live tweeting and create tweet storms. According to the developer Tapbot, a Topic is a way to let you quickly Tweet a group of related Tweets without having to manually reply to yourself, or reply to yourself and have to manually add the same hashtags each time. You can also save Topics to to iCloud, so these can be continued on to your iPad or Mac.
Update Sorry, we got our version numbers mixed up while researching countless different Twitter apps. The official one is Twitter 3.1.0, and the following article has been updated to reflect that.There is only one Twitter, there's only one official Twitter application for Mac, and it's just got an update to Twitter 3.1.0. We've rather ignored it for ages, so in the face of this latest update, we took a look -- and the only new update is that this release adds the ability for you to send Direct Messages of greater than 140 characters. That's it.

Instagram videos are now marked with a play icon. Priced at $20, Tweetbot for Twitter requires OS X 10.7.4 or later to run.

Yesterday Tapbots unleashed the next major version of its popular Twitter client, Tweetbot, for the iPhone. However, to the displeasure of many, this iOS 7 optimized update was released as a new app and not as a free update for existing customers. Anyone looking to take advantage of the advancements found in the update will need to pay the full entry fee of $3.
Tweetbot for Mac has seen an update today, introducing a new media view giving a timeline view of the users' feed of images and video from people followed. The new view is invocable by clicking "view" in the menu bar followed by "Media timeline." The view shows only tweets with media connected.
Twitter VP of Engineering Addam Messinger in a statement hoped to reassure developers that it wouldn't sue over patents like Loren Brichter's pull-to-refresh control. A new Innovator's Patent Agreement would only allow using a patent for defensive purposes unless Twitter had explicit permission from the inventor. The pact would also see that level of control transferred with the patents, preventing a company buying the patents from turning around and suing against the inventor's will.

Apple employees testing wheelchair features
New features included in the forthcoming watchOS 3 are being tested by Apple retail store employees, including a new activity-tracking feature that has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll" and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. http://bit.ly/2955JDa
