Twitter finally updates its Windows Phone app after seven months

Twitter has silently updated its Windows Phone app to now include in-line images and this is the first update for the app since November 2013. While it was starting to seem like Twitter had all but abandoned its Windows Phone app, this update provides a sliver of hope that the company will soon add more features to the Windows Phone version of its official client. 

Also new in the update is the ability to reply, favorite and retweet from your timeline and multiple image support is now included in the app. Sadly, gif support is not included in this update and there is also a gigantic header at the top of the feed that seems oversized for no apparent reason.

You can download the Twitter app from the Windows Phone Store right now using the link at the bottom of this post or search for Twitter in the Store.

Because of Twitter's token limit on third-party applications, developers have been hesitant to build apps for the service as they know they have a limited life-cycle. Because of this, the official Twitter client is the only app that is guaranteed to work without these restrictions.

While we hope that many more updates will come for the Windows Phone client to bring it closer in feature parity to iOS and Android, today's small update is nonetheless a welcome addition to an app that has been stagnant for over 7 months.
