Twitter has already signaled its love of TV by negotiating deals for branded video, but it’s not satisfied yet: the company has started limited testing of a timeline box for trending TV shows. The feature provides both the details of a given show as well as a list of associated Twitter accounts. Thankfully, the box isn’t a permanent fixture; while it will appear on its own, users can close and scroll past the box to return to their personal feeds. The company isn’t commenting on the test or the likelihood of a wider rollout, but the popularity of Twitter as a live TV companion suggests that the trending TV box could be here to stay.
Nearly a year after it debuted and caught our eye as an incredibly well structured Twitter client for the iPhone, Tweetbot’s latest revision uses Apple’s cloud servers to sync the experience instead of just content. Version 2.2’s iCloud based syncing of account settings, timeline position, DMs and Mute filters lets those deep in the iLife go from iPhone to iPad or vice versa without missing a beat. The only possible fly in the ointment? The tablet and phone version are still separate apps that cost $ 2.99 each, but satisfied customers who have already ponied up can start enjoying their seamless transitions as soon as they’ve updated.
