New Twitter app for Windows 10 available from Microsoft Store
Available today, Twitter’s new app for Windows 10 is better than ever. It supports features that people on Twitter love, including longer Tweets, the Explore tab to find topics relevant to your interests, and the ability to bookmark Tweets to be read later. The new app also supports unique Windows features, including a refreshed look and feel with taskbar pinning, push notifications in Action Center, and share integration with Windows apps. Additional features like night mode are coming soon.
Twitter’s new Windows app is built on open web standards, powered by the fast and efficient Microsoft Edge engine in Windows 10. As a Progressive Web App integrated with the Windows platform, Twitter enhanced the in-app experience with unique UWP differentiators like share integration, and more, while building from a common core of web code.
