Hold on to your hats, boys and girls – things are about to get real. Since the dawn of time, we've been asking – nay, demanding – an official Twitter app with tablet optimizations. Just when we thought our pleas were going unheard, Samsung unintentionally showed us what's up during its Unpacked event today at IFA.

I present to you, a quick look at Twitter's tablet-optimized interface:

During the event, they even referred to it as "the redesigned Twitter app" while discussing all the nifty things Samsung has packed into the Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

Twitter Launches Official Play Store Beta - Sign Up Now To Get New Features Before Anyone Else

A number of social apps have turned to the Play Store to manage their betas. We've already seen Facebook and Snapchat launch official beta versions to anyone who signs up for the privilege, and now Twitter is doing the same. If you've signed up for either of the other programs, the routine should feel pretty familiar. The experimental build will replace the current Twitter app on your phone, unlike the Chrome beta that can exist side-by-side with the stable release.

Official Twitter App Updated To v4.1.6, Brings Improved Conversations, New Notification Settings, Optimizations For Low-End Android Phones

While Twitter may be doing certain things to kill third party applications (or at least slow them down), it's also making strides towards bettering its own application, too. Take today's update, for example – it brings a few goodies to the table, most notably an improved conversation experience.

If you're familiar with Twitter in the slightest, then you're probably pretty used to seeing a tweet with an @mention and getting curious as to what the involved parties are discussing.

Remember that nifty multi-carrier LTE version of the Nexus 7 that was shown off when the tablet was revealed last month? Google has been mum on a specific release date for that version, but United Kingdom carrier O2 is more than willing to chat it up.

Official Twitter Android App Updated With Login Verification, New Gallery View For Search Result Photos

Today's Twitter update has a keen focus on security. Back in May, the company introduced an SMS-based two-factor authentication system for signing into the service. Now login requests can be be verified using just the mobile app. Users can sign into Twitter and enjoy the extra security of two-factor authentication without having to provide a phone number or worry about cell reception. The app also generates backup codes just in case your phone isn't available when you want to sign in later on.

Official Twitter App Updated With DM Sync And Improved Search Experience

Long-time Twitter users have their fair share of daily annoyances with the company's mobile application, but an update just hit the Play Store that should improve on some of those – namely DM synchronization and better search results.

According to the official Twitter blog, when you read a DM post-update, it will be marked as read across the web and other applications (like Tweetdeck, for example). This is fantastic news for all the Twitter users who are tired of getting the "XX unread DMs" notification after installing a new Twitter client.

Falcon Pro Updates To v2.0.4 Outside Of The Play Store, Now Supports A Way To Blatantly Skirt Twitter's Token Limit

Falcon Pro users have had a front-row seat to quite a bit of drama over the last few months. The events started when the app struck its 100,000 user token limit, which lead to the developer to reset user tokens in an effort to reallocate them to active users. Eventually, all of the tokens were consumed again, in part to the addition of multi-account support, and another "reset" was announced.

[New App] Twheel Put A Circular Spin On your Twitter Feed, Aims To help You Discover New People To Follow

Twitter is an awesome social discovery tool, but its implementation is fairly static. Even whiz-bang Twitter clients like the unfortunate Falcon Pro still present tweets in ye olde vertical column layout. Twheel (stylized "twheel") aims to bring a more innovative approach to Twitter. Tweets are presented in a wheel (natch) with 30 visible at any given time. Color-coordinated tags and bars let you see which ones are getting the most attention on Twitter, and sliding your finger around lets you highlight individual tweets to read them at the top of the screen.
