The Twitter for Android app received a pretty big overhaul today to correlate with the new Twitter web interface. The redesign aims to make the app more intuitive and functional by separating everything into specific categories: Home, Connect, Discover, and Me.
As you might expect, Home is your basic timeline. When you tap on a tweet, it gives you all the details, including replies, retweets, and embedded images - much like the previous version.
Connect, on the other hand, is a different story. This serves as a place that aggregates all of your notifications - new followers, retweets, replies, etc. all in one place. It's actually a bit confusing and cluttered at first, but may be a bit easier to get used to over time. On a personal level, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this change - it's as if they fixed something that wasn't broken. On the other hand, the added ability to see who retweeted you and new followers all in one place could prove to be quite convenient. Only time will tell.
The Discover tab is where you'll find trending topics and suggestions for you. There is also a search bar on top so you can quickly find any keywords or hashtags.
Me is, well, you. In a nutshell, it's a quick overview of your tweets, follower count, follow-ee count, and more.
