Twitter for Android updated, brings Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet/Color support

Twitter has released an update for its Android app today along with the release of optimized versions for Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet and Nook Color. Apart from the Nook versions, updated Twitter apps can now be downloaded from Android Market or Amazon Appstore. Nook versions will be available tomorrow in Nook Apps.

Twitter for Android is now also optimized for Ice Cream Sandwich devices.

Other changes in the update:

Swipe shortcut: Swipe a Tweet in your home timeline to reply to, retweet, favorite or share it, or view the Twitter user’s profile, without leaving your timeline.

“Find friends”: Confirmation alert when you select “Find friends”. This notification more clearly and explicitly messages the fact that when you upload your contacts’ email addresses and phone numbers, you can quickly find which of your friends are on Twitter (that is, if they’ve chosen to be discoverable by email or phone number).
