Twitter updated their app to version 6.3 today, bringing photo tagging and the ability to tweet multiple photos at once. Twitter says that the goal of this is to make photos more social.

You can now tag up to 10 people in a photo that you tweet. Importantly, tagging doesn’t use any characters, so you still have all 140 for a message. To tag someone, select one of your photos and tap on “Who’s in this photo” when it comes up. Then type and select the name of the person you want to tag. You can add up to nine more names to the photo. After the photo is tweeted, tags will appear next it, and let users navigate to a tagged person’s profile by tapping their name.

You can also tweet up to four photos at once. Simply select four images from the composer to place them in a tweet. Tap on one of the photos to make it larger, then swipe to view the rest at that size. Both multiple photos and tagging will appear in embedded tweets.

 How to post a tweet using Siri in iOS 7

If you’re running iOS 7 on your iPhone or iPad, Siri makes it easier than ever to post a tweet to your Twitter timeline without having to tap a single key on the keyboard. This makes for a great trick when you’re wearing gloves or doing something where you can’t completely concentrate on typing. Here’s how to do it:

How to post a new tweet to Twitter using Siri in iOS 7

  1. Press and hold the Home button from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad in order to activate Siri.
  2. Now say Compose a tweet.
  3. Siri then asks you to dictate what you’d like it to say. Go ahead and so do.
  4. She’ll ask you to confirm what you said and let her know you’re ready to send it. Either say Yes or tap to confirm.

That’s all there is to it. Siri will send your tweet on its way. As a side note, if Siri produces an error or tells you to link your Twitter accounts, make sure you’re signed into your Twitter account in the Settings app.

What happened to the quick Tweet and Facebook post buttons on Control Center in iOS 7?

 What happened to the quick Tweet and Facebook post buttons on Control Center in iOS 7?

With iOS 6, Notification Center had two quick button actions, tweet and post to Facebook, that could be reached from anywhere on the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with the downward swipe of a finger. Now, in iOS 7, they’re gone. Disappeared. Taken out back and shuttered. So where did they go, and how can you quickly tweet or post to Facebook now, on iOS 7?

Short answer, they got obliterated. Not moved. Not hidden. Obliterated. The truth is, they never fit into Notification Center, because they’re not notifications. They’re actions. They were out of context. However, the brand new Control Center seems to exist to take on just exactly those jobs. Quick access to Settings, quick access to apps, why not quick access to tweeting and posting to Facebook?

Apple, in their infinitely looped wisdom, however, hasn’t seen fit to include them there. Maybe they will in a future update, maybe they’ve decided those quick actions just weren’t right and we won’t ever see them again. In the meantime, if you loved the iOS 6 quick action tweet and Facebook post buttons, you’re in for a huge disappointment. They are no more.

 What happened to the quick Tweet and Facebook post buttons on Control Center in iOS 7?

One alternative is to use Siri, which can now post to both Twitter and Facebook. Simply say “Post to Facebook” or “post to Twitter” and then dictate what you want to say. It’s incredibly fast and convenient… if you’re in a situation where you can talk out loud to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.

If not, the alternatives aren’t anywhere nearly as quick or convenient. You can use the Twitter and Facebook app, one or a third-party alternative Twitter apps like Tweetbot or Twitterrific. They’re nowhere nearly as always-accessible as Notification Center, nor are they as single-purpose or streamlined as the quick action buttons, but they still exist.

You can also use the tweet or Facebook post action in the Share Sheets in most apps to quickly send out a message, but the catch is you have to share something to do it, and you’re not always going to want to do that.

In a perfect world Apple would include them in Control Center, or a similar mechanism, and enhance them with actionable notifications so we can reply and reset within apps as well, making even more of our actions quick. Sadly, we don’t live in that world yet. Strangely, the upcoming OS X Mavericks not only retains the quick action tweet and Facebook post buttons in Notification Center, but actionable notifications as well. And it’s not even mobile, where those features are inarguably more urgently needed.

So, no good answers, but if you used and relied on the old quick actions button, feel free to vent in the comments, and if you come up with any brilliant work arounds, let me know!

Tweet Lanes goes open source

Tweet Lanes

After finding himself too busy with personal matters and development for another app, Chris Lacy has admitted that he can no longer play an active role in improving Tweet Lanes, a Twitter app for Android. That said, he has turned Tweet Lanes into an open source project, passing on the future of the app to the Android community.

Yes, we know there are quite a lot of other apps in the Play Store to manage your Twitter apps. New ones keep appearing and some existing ones have dedicated developers who are still consistently pushing updates and features. But what really sets Tweet Lanes apart from the Twitter app flock is its Holo-themed user interface, intuitive navigating through swiping, multiple account support, and flexible customizations. Leaving the app to die just because its creator can no longer commit is just plain wrong. But by relegating the development work to the community, Tweet Lanes might just receive the time and attention it deserves.

Besides announcing the switch to open source in Google+, Lacy revealed that the only thing he can do for Tweet Lanes is “syncing with the master branch and releasing a signed version of the app to the Play Store a few times a week.” He then continued to list the tasks he can’t commit to such as implementing new features, addressing flaws, feedback response, and more. He hopes that the community, which he suggests should be led by a volunteer dev lead and community manager, can perform those responsibilities to keep the project afloat.

Lacy is still currently looking for volunteers. But if no one steps up, the latest Tweet Lanes update will probably be the last.
