Twitter for Windows 10 Mobile gets an all-new look

Twitter has updated their Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app, bringing an all-new design. Previously, the UWP app was only available for Windows 10 for PCs.

As you'll notice from the photo above, the new app includes Moments. The app also supports light and dark themes, depending on the user's settings. Here's what the app description notes as new.

Find the best of Twitter in an instant with Moments. Follow top stories through immersive pics, clips, and conversations. Get insights and perspectives you won't find anywhere else.

  • Find the best of Twitter in an instant.
  • Get exclusive pics, clips, and conversations.
  • Express yourself with a Tweet.
  • Find people and accounts that interest you.
  • Hello from this part of the world!
  • See the moment.

Ultimately, it would appear that the UWP app will finally bring Twitter for Windows phones to maturity, as it has never been a particularly well-featured app. Here's a couple screenshots of both:
