Tweeting from your favorite app or game is about to be awesome

Today, Twitter is introducing a new tweet composer for apps and games, which will display what your tweet actually looks like. The feature was announced today at the company’s developer conference, Flight.

“What we’re changing, is that now it (the composer) shows an in-line preview of the content you’re sharing,” says Twitter’s Senior Director of Product, Jeff Seibert.

Rather than trust the in-app tweet composer to add your screenshot, it will now show you exactly what your tweet will look like.

Twitter says the new composer was built around screenshots, because that’s typical of the automation process for tweeting from apps or games.

In addition to the new composer, your tweet will have an install card that encourages people who see your tweet to either download the app if they don’t have it, or open it if they do.
