Earlier today, Twitter released version 3.5.0 of their app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This app brings a host of new features. One particular feature that blends in well with the deep Twitter integration of iOS 5 is the enhanced sign up experience that Twitter for iOS version 3.5.0 offers. We already know that Twitter has been deeply integration in iOS 5. By adding the credentials of your Twitter account in the Settings.app, you can tweet from anywhere in iOS 5, as well as upload pictures and reply to tweets. The enhanced sign up experience makes sure that you do not have to enter your credentials once again when you install the app. The app would automatically pull in the credentials that you entered in the Settings.app and will load up all of your tweets and direct messages.
