| by Nikhil Subramaniam |
Carbon for Twitter, a third-party client for the popular social network, is now available for Android users. Available on the Google Play Store for download right now, the app is available for free. Carbon has been a much-awaited app in Android circles and it has been teased for a long time. It was earlier scheduled to be released last July for Android users.

Carbon does bring something different to the table. The pull to refresh gesture is quite refreshing - the timeline tilts and splits up like venetian blinds, while if you are one of those who just stare at the screen waiting for updates, Carbon alerts you with a big digit overlayed on the timeline.
Much of the screen is devoted to your timeline, with menus hidden away
Direct Messages are displayed in thread format. Users can speed scroll in any direction using two fingers to jump to the top or bottom of any screen. Tapping and holding down on tweets reveals more options right on the same screen. The Timeline is multimedia friendly with support for full inline images and videos. It also brings staple features like background updates. One special feature is support for quick actions from notification screen for Jelly Bean devices, so you can reply to tweets without entering the app. It also lets you filter your Timeline by hashtags, users and keywords.
