Twitter for iPhone is one of the most downloaded and installed applications in the App Store. So when a new version comes out, it’s kind of a big deal. Well, thanks to a bug in the App Store in iOS 6, 9to5Mac was able to spot an incoming update to the official Twitter application. The update appeared below “Version History” in the iOS 6 App Store, and showed the whole change log for the app. Version 4.3 has a long list of new features, like the new icon and major enhancements to push notifications.
