The Twitterific iOS app has been updated to version 5.9, with a bunch of useful extra features.

The app now supports multiple images in the timeline, allowing you to view them as a slideshow or tap directly on the thumbnail you want to view, as well as allowing you to tweet multiple images yourself. Many videos now play directly in the timeline, as do animated GIFs. Supported videos include Vine, Instagram and Moby.

Instagram photos also open within the app, you can view a user’s mentions by tapping and holding their avatar, and media links now open the source page. The full change-log appears below.

The company’s Mac app, meantime, appears to have been trapped by the token limit Twitter imposes on the number of users able to use the service with each app. Tweetbot for Mac is currently suffering from the same issue.

Twitterific 5.9 is a free download from iTunes, but with in-app purchases.
