ad950f3166bb94dbd1b62667e06df8ef.jpgThe official Twitter app for Android is great at the basics, but it might leave power users wanting more. Recent updates have added more features such as extra content at the top of your news feed, photo-editing tools, and two-factor authentication, which make the app more useful, but it's still not on par with other third-party options.

Each time you boot up the Twitter app, it opens to your Home screen and ??????? lands on the last tweet that you read. Tap the Home tab to quickly jump to the top, or tap on any individual tweet to pop it out to a new screen. On this new screen, you get options to Reply, Retweet, Favorite, or Share, and in some cases you can view thumbnails images or other rich content contained in the tweet (for links to Twitter's partner sites). What we don't like about this system is that you have to press the Back button at the top of the screen to return to your timeline from an expanded tweet. We would much prefer to see expanded tweets inline (like you can on the Web site), without having to pop out to a new screen each time. Also, it would've been nice to get collapsible previews of links inline as well.
