Twitter’s tablet-optimized Android app is official, but limited to Samsung devices for now

Twitter's tabletoptimized Android app is now official, but limited to Samsung devices

Do you remember that that previously leaked Twitter app for Android tablets? Yep, it’s now official.

As expected, the app provides a landscape view that shows both the Twitter timeline and content from expanded tweets; tap on a post and you’ll see article previews or media without losing your place in the social stream. There’s also a new home screen widget, multi-app viewing support and an illustrator tool for hand-drawn artwork. As good as all that sounds, there’s one major catch — you’ll have to buy a Samsung tablet to use Twitter’s app in any official capacity.

The tablet-optimized Android software is available only for the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) right now, and it’s coming to other Samsung slates at an unspecified point in the future. There’s no word as to whether or not those using other manufacturers’ devices will get their turn.
