Twitter for Android gets launcher shortcuts, a shiny new circular icon and more

If you’re a frequent Twitter user with an Android smartphone or tablet running Nougat, you’ll be glad to hear that the stable version of the application has finally been graced with multi-window compatibility, launcher shortcuts and a shiny new circular icon.

Some may argue that it isn’t an overly important update, but I’d be inclined to disagree. Having the facility to search, compose a new Tweet and send a Direct Message by long-pressing the icon directly from the home screen is a pretty big deal as it finally brings the application in line with its iOS counterpart.
