Twitter has quietly added support for iOS 8’s native, customizable share sheet, replacing its own limited share menu previously used. Custom share sheet support enables users to send URLs and other items to various apps and services on iOS without ever leaving the Twitter app.

This multitasking feature has long been adopted in third-party Twitter clients on iOS including Tweetbot and Twitterrific, but Twitter restricts certain features like detailed interaction history to its own app.

Twitter version 6.32 for iOS appears to introduce support for the native share sheet for iPhone users in an update that only mentions “minor improvements” and the removal of the Discovery tab for the iPad version. Users can enable the native share sheet by long pressing on a URL or image.

The iPad version seems to still use Twitter’s limited share menu based on my testing, although the feature wasn’t immediately available on the iPhone version for me either.
