Is a new tablet optimised version of Twitter on its way?

I know a lot of users have been crying out for a tablet optimised version of the official twitter app, me included, but to date we have been stuck with using the stretched phone UI or find an alternative app that gives us what we want. With Twitter restricting developers of third party apps they really needed to do something about the tablet UI and it looks like we could be getting a new version soon.

During Samsung’s Unpacked event at IFA they spoke about the redesigned Twitter app and even went as far as showing a screenshot for everyone to see.

As you can see from the images above there is a big difference and a very welcome change to the official Twitter app. The next question: When will we see this version released? There is no word from Twitter on this at this time, but as soon as we know more, we will let you know.
