Twitter for Windows Phone gets a big update

Today Twitter has released a big update to its app for Windows Phone. Version 2 brings a brand new design that brings the app in line with other Twitter apps and brings several new features that Twitter says makes it easier for you to discover and share the content that matters to you.

Like Twitter on other platforms, the new app for Windows Phone now has a new navigation which includes Home, Connect (mentions and interactions), Discover (trends, search, categories, suggestions) and Me (your profile, direct messages, lists, favourites and profile editing). You can now compose a tweet or a search from anywhere in the app using the new icon buttons in the application bar.

Twitter for Windows Phone also finally has Live tiles, you can pin Twitter accounts, lists and searches to your start screen for super quick access. From using the app it also feels much more snappy than the previous version.
