Official Twitter app adds new features

It seems like only yesterday that we were announcing big improvements for Twitter’s official Windows Phone 8 app. Today, Twitter delivered yet another batch of nice upgrades, including several new photo-friendly features. Here are the highlights:

  • Lens app integration.
  • An improved tweet composition experience with photo filter support. Just tap the camera icon to capture an image from your phone’s viewfinder, or pull in a shot from your Cameral Roll. Then apply one of 8 new filters (you can see them below).
  • Play embedded Vine videos directly from within tweets.
  • Save tweeted photos to your phone.
  • Refresh lists on-demand.

There’s also a bunch of bug fixes and a few more goodies I’m probably forgetting. So if you don’t own the official Twitter app yet, now’s a good time to grab it.
