Twitter for Android stepped up its game today with a couple of new features that users probably wish it had incorporated a long time ago.

Now, users get the option to receive Push Notifications, which are essentially real-time, automatic updates. Previously, users had to set the app to refresh at timed intervals. Now they can go into account settings and enable Automatic Refresh to get instant Status Bar notifications for Direct Messages, @Mentions, and Tweets.

Also, the updated app now supports multiple account sign-in, making it easy to switch between your social media alter egos.

The new version of Twitter for Android is available for download now in the Android Market.
