Twitter for iOS got updated to version 5.9 today, and with the update came a handful of useful new features.
Twitter has innovated on the login verification feature it launched in May, by now letting users approve login requests from directly within their phone’s app. Previously, users only had the option to receive SMS messages to approve a request, but now this can be done through the app’s push notifications. The app will now also give you detailed information about the device that is trying to access your account.
The app’s search feature has also been slightly updated to include “social context” and it also brings a new photo gallery view when searching through images. You can read more in-depth on the new features on Twitter’s official blog post.
Here is the app’s full update release:
Now you can protect your account with login verification. This is a new form of two-factor authentication that allows you can turn on and manage directly from your app.
Also in this release:
• View anyone’s photos in a beautiful gallery when you visit their profile and tap ‘View more photos’
• Photo search results can also be viewed in a gallery
• Enjoy several improvements to lists: create new lists and edit your existing lists; manage titles and descriptions; add or remove members

• Other bug fixes and improvements
