Twitter App for Windows 8 Released


Microsoft has finally released Twitter for Windows 8, an app which brings you all the design, features and functionality of Twitter combined with the technology of Windows 8.

Through the 'Discover' icon you see new topics from people in your network and other information like 'Trends' and 'Who to Follow' suggestions.

The 'Share charm' makes it easier to tweet links, pictures and opinions to your followers from anywhere in Windows 8.

You can also create a screen with 'Snap view' on Windows 8. Drag Twitter into the narrow side of the screen and slide in another favorite app. You can stream a live video while you watch the conversation about it unfold on Twitter. Then use the 'Share charm' to join the discussion.



Similar to using the Share charm, you can use the 'Search charm' to find Twitter accounts to follow or Tweets with a certain hashtag.

Photos are also large and center with an all-new landscape view giving you a larger version of a photo included in a Tweet.

While the design for Twitter for Windows 8 will seem familiar to anyone who has used the Twitter app for Windows Phone, the new Twitter app takes advantage of Windows 8 in some ways. For exanple,itt has a Live Tile that allows you to quickly see who has replied to you on Twitter right from your Start screen and you'll get notifications too for replies and direct messages.

Twitter for Windows 8 is now available for download in the Windows Store.
