Tweetbot Now Supports Apple’s ‘Peek And Pop’ 3D Touch Feature

Tweetbot is now geared with 3D Touch reinforcement, enabling users to access features right from the Home screen using Quick Actions. The Quick Actions for Tweetbot can be deployed by pressing down on the app icon firmly, unveiling a new set of options in the new window pane.

Since there are four options available, the first option is ‘Tweet’ that only opens the app. The second option allows users to open the keyboard and type the tweet immediately. The third and fourth option of the Quick Actions enables users to ‘Tweet Last Photo’ and ‘Show Activity’. The 3D Touch support for Tweetbot is really handy and productive since it minimizes the time to open the app and navigate to several keys and tabs to get to the desired location.


Moreover, the Tweetbot update also supports Apple’s ‘Peek and Pop’ feature. The Peek and Pop feature is of great importance to users who wish to preview the link content without actually opening it. The aforesaid feature can be accessed by firmly pressing down on the display over the link, opening a miniature window, showing users the content underneath. Furthermore, if you keep pressing the link with more force, the link would ‘Pop’ open and reveal the entire link content.
