A better Twitter for Windows Phone arrives

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.

Lock screen support

Twittify your lock screen to show a counter or detailed status updates.

Live Tile support

Now you can pin Twitter accounts, lists, and searches to Start.

Speech recognition support

Just start a new tweet and speak the text.

Tweet and search buttons

Compose a tweet or search from anywhere in the app.
