Twitter Windows 10 app launched with live tile support

by Todd Haselton | July 30, 2015

Microsoft officially launched Windows 10 on Wednesday, making it available to millions of people around the world as an update. You can also now buy new Windows 10 computers. And what better way to celebrate your new operating system than by loading it up with fresh apps that were specially designed for it? The latest is a new native Twitter application, which was launched recently and was built from the ground up for Windows 10.

A highlight feature is support for live tiles, which means you can pin Twitter to your Start menu and see notifications right there. It’s also technically a “Universal Windows Application” which means it should resize automatically as you adjust the window, and should work with keyboard/mouse systems and touchscreens, thanks to what Microsoft is calling “Continuum” support. Other features of the Windows 10 Twitter application include support for tweeting up to four photos at once, embedded GIF viewing, Vine playback, previews of tweets with photos and Vine content, and support for sharing photos through Direct Messages.

You should find it in the Windows App Store now. For more on Windows 10, check out our top 5 Windows 10 features article.
