Twitter has recently come out with three new updates for its iPhone and Android apps.

The social networking powerhouse tweaked the design, while adding a number of improvements to the mobile version of the microblogging service.

The addition of a discover tab to the app, improved search functionality and push notifications for Interactions are named among the three new enhancements to the service, according to a Twitter press release.

The update brings what Twitter is calling the Discover tab. Much like the Web version, the Discover tab lets you know what tweets people you follow have favorited or retweeted.

The tab also lets you know if someone you follow has decided to follow a new person or add a new person to a list.

Activity appears below stories in Discover, and tapping on a story will let you see more tweets about a trend or news story that can be replied to, retweeted or favorited.

Twitters second update brings improved search functionality. The update offers suggested spellings and related terms when you search.

When performing a search, the app will autocomplete searches for people you follow when you start typing in his or her first or last name or username.

Exclusive to the iPhone within the second update, Twiter has added the ability to tap the search box in Discover and see your recent queries, as well as the ability to go directly to someone's profile when searching for a username in Connect.

The third and final update, Notification, can be pushed to mobile devices when someone new follows you on the service, or when your tweets have been retweeted or favorite.

Twitter credited the updates to collaboration among many of its teams, including Android, iOS, Discover and Search.
