– Improved DM conversation view, now works similar to SMS/Chat.

– Cleaner, redesigned Tweet compose screen: Previously we need to tap on the 140 char button to reveal options, but now they are lined at the bottom of the compose area and streamlined to only 4 buttons.
– Autocomplete @usernames and hashtags. finally an easy way to mention names. Previously we have to open the usernames screen and search. Now we just do it in the compose screen.
