Twitter Now Supporting 3D Touch’s Peek and Pop on iPhone 6S

Twitter has updated its iOS app with expanded support for the pressure-sensitive 3D Touch interface on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. It is now possible to, within the app, use Peek and Pop to preview various types of content with a “Peek” before fully opening it with a “Pop”.

Tweets, links, pictures and user profiles can all be previewed and opened in this manner. Upon making a Peek, it’s also possible to swipe it up to unveil access to various shortcuts, including to share through direct message and iOS extensions or – with a profile – mute, block and report the user.

This represents a significant broadening of the Twitter app’s 3D Touch support – which, as MacRumors notes, was previously limited to Home screen Quick Actions allowing users to more quickly search, make new tweets or send direct messages. Nonetheless, MacStories points out that, with Peek and Pop support apparently still absent in the Notifications tab, the app lags Tweetbot in 3D Touch support.

The latest version of the Twitter app with this expanded 3D Touch support, version 6.54, is now free to download for iPhone from the iOS App Store.
