A big new update to the official Twitter app for Windows Phone hit the Store this morning. Download it now. Version 2.0 has been significantly redesigned and adds a bunch of great new features, which our friends at Twitter also highlighted today on their blog.
Here’s what’s new:
Four new navigation tabs
- Home: View Tweets from the accounts you follow. Tap a tweet to expand it and see photos, videos and website summaries.
- Connect: Keep up with your mentions. See who’s followed or retweeted you, or added one of your tweets to their favorites.
- Discover: See trends, and find new content on Twitter—browse categories, find friends, and see suggestions for accounts to follow.
- Me: Read and respond to your direct messages. You can also see your lists and favorites or view and update your profile.
