Twitter is pushing search and discovery on the mobile platform. In an update today, Twitter announced updates to their Android and iOS apps, along with The updates "provide a single stream of content in each tab, so you can better find what's most important to you when you're on the go."




The Discover feed now puts tweets, activity, trends, and account suggestions into a single stream. Search now functions similarly to the Discover feature, meaning that tweets, pictures, and accounts all appear in a single stream. A search button has been added to the iOS app that will allow users to search from anywhere within the app.


Finally, links can now be followed with a single click. Previously, clicking a link would first expand the tweet and then require another click to follow the link. Now, a single click will open up the website. The new apps are available in Google Play and the Apple App Store.
