The biggest enhancement is the ability to use more than one Twitter account. One common use-case for multiple accounts is a person who maintains personal and business Twitter accounts. There is a Switch Account function to work with multiple accounts. Tweets can be cross-posted across accounts. And, a retweet can be made between accounts within the app.

The Switch Account function is found in the Profile screen represented by a double arrow icon. The new Edit Profile function (represened by a pencil icon) lets a person change the picture or update personal information
