Twitter for Android updated with support for embedded retweets

Twitter for Android updated with support for embedded retweetsTwitter recently announced that they will be updating their browser and mobile apps with support for embedded retweets - a new way for you to repost what someone else has said, while keeping their original tweet intact and adding your own comment without wasting a lot of characters.

Twitter for iOS was updated almost immediately, but Android users were kept waiting until today. In order to get the new feature, you will have to download the latest version directly on your device through the Google Play Store or using the following link

Requirements Android 2.3 or greater

When you tap to retweet someone and you pick the option to quote the tweet, instead of the usual "@username: tweet", you will see the embedded tweet and a space to add a comment with over 100 characters left to share your intricate thoughts.

Another enhancement to Twitter for Android is the new Trends feature which combines the Discover and Activity Tabs. Trends is currently only available in the US and offers a slightly cleaner look, with the three top tabs gone and only the main blue menu bar remaining.
