If you are the proud owner of an Android-powered smartphone who cannot afford to pass a single day without getting your daily fix of Twitter on your mobile phone, today will definitely be a very good day to hit the Android Market and update that Twitter app currently residing in your smartphone to the latest version.

Do you have Twitter installed on your Android-powered smartphone? Well, if you do, today will be a good day to visit the Android Market for some downloading, as Twitter has updated its official app to include a few new features that now brings the Android version to a level where it has seemingly achieved feature-parity with its iOS counterpart.

According to the description posted by Twitter on the Android Market, the updated version will allow Android owners to receieve push notifications much like how their iPhone counterparts have been able to do so for quite some time already, and that users can choose if they want to limit the notifications to merely mentions and direct messages, or expand it to everyone. In addition, Twitter claims that the updated client now boasts support for multiple accounts and comes with updated widgets, ostensibly to give the app a "newer" look and feel.

Last but definitely not least, Twitter is specifying a minimum requirement of handsets being loaded with at least version 2.1 of the Android operating system, although Electronista is claiming that users who are already on Froyo or newer can expect to enjoy full integration of the app into the operating system upon installation.
