It looks like Twitter is gearing up to release a major update for their iPhone and iPad app, based on the change log discovered by 9to5Mac in the redesigned App Store in iOS 6.
According to the leaked change log of the upcoming update – Twitter 4.3 will include features such as a interactive Tweet view experience, enhanced notifications, searching, performance and lots more.
Here’s the list of what’s coming in Twitter 4.3:

- Special experience around selected events: we’ll curate accounts and surface the best Tweets and photos from the those involved
- Improvements to autocomplete suggestions when you search for people in Connect
- Push Notifications for Tweets: you can know immediately when selected people you follow have tweeted
