Not Forgotten: Twitter for Windows Phone receives a large update

If you have used the Official twitter app on Windows Phone, you will know that it is the unloved child of Twitter. While the app has lagged significantly behind its counterparts on other platforms, the application has received an update today.

The Twitter app is now bumped up to version 2.0 and we have posted the changes below:

Twitter for Windows Phone 2.0 is a major refresh, bringing the best content to the experience of the Windows Phone. New features:

Integrated right into your Windows Phone with faster performance, lock screen, and custom Live Tile that show your notifications

Direct access to your favorite profiles and lists optimizing Windows Phone "pinning" functionality

Streamlined navigation brings you the new Home, Connect, Discover and Me tabs

Engage with the best Twitter content available in the Discover tab, as well as Trends, browse categories, find friends, and suggestions about Who To Follow

Enjoy your Retweets, favorites, follows, mentions and replies in the Connect tab, or filter your mentions and replies only

There are plenty of quality options on Windows Phone right now like Rowi but knowing that these applications have a token limit of 100k users, the apps have limited shelf-life.

We hope that this update will be the start of feature-parity between Windows Phone and other platforms but seeing as this is the first update in a very long time, we are not holding our breath.
