Are you still using Carbon for Twitter, despite Twitter's consistent efforts to kill off the third-party apps that built the service? Good for you. The developer thanks you, and is indeed still working on the app. The latest version introduces a ton of new features and fixes, notably surrounding image, GIF, and video support. Carbon can also support Twitter's new quote display function, which lets you reply to a tweet and embed it beneath your own.
