Twitter is rolling out yet another update to its Progressive Web App (PWA) this week, which should be good news for those using Twitter for Windows or Twitter Lite on Android. The new version doesn't bring any major new changes, but it does include some quality-of-life improvements, as well as some bug fixes.
Starting with what's new, the team has added a new text resizing option to the accessibility settings of the PWA experience, which should be good news for those who have trouble reading smaller text. The majority of the improvements revolve around Lists, however:
- There's now an information screen for lists that lets users rename, change privacy settings, or subscribe to a list. You can access this screen through the 'i' icon on the top right of a list.
- You can now add or remove a user from multiple lists at once, which can be done by accessing their profile and clicking the settings icon.
The changelog also mentions the ability to access your own lists from the drop-down menu after clicking on your profile picture, as well as other users' lists by clicking the settings icon on their profile. However, this has been available for some time now. This is also the only feature we were able to access in our own testing, so the others may be rolling out gradually.
In addition to these changes, there are some bug fixes in this update too:
- Fixed drag and drop into media compose.
- Fixed overflow of long hashtags.
- Fixed media gallery display in RTL languages.
- Fixed Tweet translations for Traditional Chinese and Norwegian.
- Fixed a bug where Direct Messages were frequently not marked as read.
- Fixed a bug where elements appeared on top of full screen videos in iOS.
Twitter has been focusing a lot of its development efforts on the PWA, and it seems to be paying off. Recently, the company announced that it's rolling out the new experience to a subset of users on desktop web browsers. As more improvements and fixes make their way to the app, it should also become more widely available in the future.
