Twitter does seem as though they are about to take advantage of Google’s new system when it comes to beta testing apps, offering a new version of the social media app to those who are willing to give this app a go. If you happen to have this gung-ho attitude and love stepping out into the (relative) unknown, then you will first need to join a Google Group via your Google+ account, before choosing to voluntarily become a tester. Upon doing so, you will find the new version of the app being delivered to you via the Google Play store.
To date, it seems that both Snapchat and Facebook happened to be high-profile users of Google’s beta testing system, where they used it to gain user feedback in order to further refine and enhance their mobile apps. Right now, it is not possible to run the existing, stable version of the Twitter app in addition to the beta version, so it is a decision that you will have to make for yourself. If you want to be a beta tester, be prepared to go through a variety of known and of course, unknown bugs and glitches. Hey, there is a price to pay for everything, and at least you get to brag to your mates if all goes well.
