It's official! Windows 10 mobiles finally get Twitter app

New York: The popular micro-blogging site Twitter surely knows how to keep its users happy.

This is certainly a good news for all Windows 10 smartphone users who are also avid users of Twitter.

Recently, a report stated that Twitter has launched its app for Windows 10 smartphones to effectively update its universal Windows app to support desktops and tablets.

Microsoft officially plans to launch Windows 10 Mobile in the first quarter of 2016, while the newly-launched smartphones and the existing Windows Phone devices already have this new app, venturebeat.com reported on Wednesday.

"When bringing the app to mobile phones we carefully considered each section of Twitter and how the user interaction translates from desktops and tablets," Twitter product designer Angela Lam said.

"We found that 90 percent of the UI (User Interface) and interaction models could be shared from these devices to mobile phones, but there were places where we decided to make adjustments to optimise for each," Lam added.

Twitter for Windows 10 includes almost all the new features the social network has recently implemented, including Moments, group Direct Messages, camera support (shoot, edit, and tweet videos), and quote tweet.

You can even check out top tweets, search, check out profiles, and peruse Moments without logging in, the report said.

Twitter for Windows Phone includes a dark theme, which the company says was popular and has thus been included in the updated Windows app, that is available on desktops and tablets as well, not just phones.

The app can be downloaded from the Windows Store.
