The best new features unveiled at the Twitter Flight developer conference

Oscar Raymundo | Oct. 22, 2015
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey kicked off the company's developer conference, announcing several new mobile products and features.

Mentioned briefly, Fabric’s Crashlytics tool will also support tvOS and the new Apple TV, so that app developers can get crash reports from Apple’s forthcoming set-top box.

Grid display for embedded tweets

Twitter is helping maximize the visual appeal of embedded tweets on the web by introducing a new responsive grid display, incorporating photos, video, and Vines. Publishers like CBS News can use the same tools that Twitter used to create Moments to find and display tweet collections.

Easier to submit apps to the App Store

Any developer will tell you that submitting an app for release can be a real pain. Thankfully, apps using Twitter’s Fabric platform will now be able to tap into Fastlane, a free, open-source deployment tool that cuts out the grunt work and automates the app release process. Previously only available to iOS developers, Fastlane is now getting Android and Google Play support by integrating with Fabric.

More tweets IRL

Expect to see more live tweets out in the real world. During Flight, Twitter also announced a partnership with JCDecaux, “the leader in out-of-home digital display.” This means that you might start seeing tweets about a train delay while you’re waiting at the station, or see your tweet cheering for your favorite sports team while at a stadium.
