Twitter for iPhone updates to 4.0

Twitter officially announced today an all new version of its social networking service, one aimed at consistency and simplicity.

Today we introduce a new version of Twitter. We’ve simplified the design to make it easier than ever to follow what you care about, connect with others and discover something new. You’ll see this new design both on Twitter.com and mobile phones, so that you’ll have a familiar experience any time, anywhere. We’ve also updated TweetDeck to be consistent with this new version.

And coinciding with this drastic redesign, Twitter for iPhone was updated a few hours ago and the app will now give you a glimpse of some the changes that will be rolling out at Twitter online over the next several weeks. The iPhone app is now divided into four tabs: Home is where you’ll see your timeline and tweets of those you follow; Connect is where you’ll go to see who has followed/mentioned you, retweeted or favorited one of your tweets; Discover lets you search for keywords/hashtags and also “discover” trending stories; and finally Me, which is the section for your profile, DMs and account settings. For all your Twitter users, be sure to grab this latest update at the App Store (or link below). You can also find out more info on Twitter’s new look at www.fly.twitter.com
