In yet another staggered feature rollout, Twitter has begun enabling full landscape support for its iOS app on the iPhone 6 Plus. Like with many of Apple’s bundled applications, Twitter app users on the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone can navigate their Timelines, Tweet, and Direct Message in landscape mode…


This mode allows users to view past message threads while replying to a current thread for example. However, especially in the Timeline view, the application does not take full advantage of the extra space in landscape mode. As this landscape view has not been enabled for all users, it is possible that Twitter will tweak and improve the feature before it debuts it for everyone.


While the feature appears to be working for a couple of 9to5Mac staff members with the iPhone 6 Plus, it is not functional on any standard iPhone 6 models running the Twitter app. Twitter typically slowly rolls out features, such as the upcoming “Project Lightning” news curation service that will launch as “Moments.”
