Microsoft launched a major update to the official Twitter app for Windows Phone 8 in February, adding a number of new features and improvements. Today, the company released yet another update for the app which adds several new, and highly requested, features.
In a post on Microsoft's official Windows Phone blog, the company goes over some of the features of the new Twitter app. One of them adds the ability to view embedded videos from Vine in tweets and another integrates Lens app support. The new Twitter app also allows for adding some filters to their Twitter photos. Microsoft says, "Just tap the camera icon to capture an image from your phone’s viewfinder, or pull in a shot from your Camera Roll. Then apply one of 8 new filters."
You can also add photos in Twitter posts to your phone's local storage in this update. In addition, the update allows for refreshes of lists on demand. Finally, there's been a number of unnamed bug fixes applied in this new version.
As we have mentioned before, even though this is the "official" Twitter app for Windows Phone 8, the actual development of the app has been conducted by a third party and not by a team at Twitter itself.
