What’s This?

In their biggest update to profiles to date, Twitter has implemented a fresh design for everyone using iOS 7 or above. To access tweets, photos and favorites, users can select from the navigational tab at the top, eliminating the need for scrolling or swiping.

You will now be able to interact directly with push notifications from Twitter, meaning you can Retweet, favorite, follow and more, directly from these notifications if you have iOS 8.

4) If your desired username is already taken, it will turn red and a message will drop down below the username field telling you to choose a new username.

5) Once you’ve chosen a username that has not been taken, a blue check mark will appear next to the username.
