Twitter's New Android Redesign is a Huge Improvement

Let's face it, even if you love the third-party apps that connect to Twitter, sooner or later they're all going to be gone. Twitter is making a big push to make it as difficult as possible to have a highly successful third party Twitter client.

They recently implemented a 100,000 token policy. Which means that every dev that has a third party app can only license that out to 100,000 people. With a ceiling like that devs are going to start shying away from creating new and innovating old apps eventually.

That being said, at least Twitter is making an effort to improve on their app. Earlier this week the completely overhauled Android app launched in the Play Store. It's definitely a lot cleaner and much faster than the old app. It allows swiping pages left and right (finally) it cleaned up a lot of the clutter and managed to make it look pretty sweet while they did it.

What do you think of the new Twitter Android app?
