@applenews Apple News Account Goes Live on Twitter

have you heard that Apple has opened that official Apple News feed on Twitter? Neither did I but a few quick looks on the Twittersphere proves it's true.

The thing is it's not news about Apple, rather it's the sort of news that one would find in the news app for iOS delivered via the Twitter handle @applenews.

Apple launched the feed on Tuesday to promote top stories and great reads from the aforementioned new app. Interestingly, though, there is no news app required.

Although the links in Apple's posts may be meant to be opened in the Apple News app, people clicking them on a desktop Web browser will be taken directly to a publication's website.

Apple News has gotten a whole lot better since the release of iOS 9.3.1 with smoother animations and letting you know articles are being downloaded. Strange however that even with background mode on, I still find a manual refresh works more consistently.
