It took long enough, but Twitter finally updated its official application for Windows Phone with support for toast and live tile notifications. Users can customize whether or not they want to receive notifications for new mentions, favorites, retweets, direct messages or new followers. The Twitter application live tile on your start screen will also update to show you when you have new updates, although it doesn't include an exact count of how many notifications you have. Twitter for Windows Phone is available now for free from the Windows Phone Marketplace.
