The Twitter for Windows 8 app has finally hit Microsoft’s Windows Store. Twitter made the announcement today that it was launching the new app, which was made specifically for Windows 8 devices.
Besides the usual Home, Connect, Discover, and Me tabs, the Windows 8 app has a host of other features. There’s Snap view, which lets users adjust the size of the Twitter app and use other apps alongside it. Photos can also be expanded or shown in a photo gallery. There are two new charms — Share and Search — which let users tweet or search from any app. And, finally, there are Twitter Live Tiles and notifications that are on-view no matter which app is running.
“Twitter for Windows 8 brings you all the design, features and functionality of Twitter combined with the fast and fluid technology of Windows 8,” Twitter says in its app description.
