The Twitter Kit for iOS, supported by Twitter as part of the Fabric developer suite, helps developers create iOS applications that integrate various Twitter functionalities. The SDK can be used to implement easy Twitter login, composing tweets, displaying tweets, and authentication all from a 3rd party application. The iOS Twitter Kit includes "Login" for standard login, "Twitter API," for iOS driven API requests, "Tweet Views," for displaying a user's Twitter stream, "Tweet Compose," for composing and posting new tweets, and "Digits," a new way that users can verify with Twitter via their mobile phone number over SMS-based authentication.
