Home » Download the New Windows 10 Twitter App for a Better Experience

Microsoft just released Windows 10 a couple of days ago, and we already have some third-party additions in the store. Namely, Twitter released its new official app for Windows 10 on the day of Windows 10 launch.

First thing we noticed about the newest Twitter Windows 10 app is that it doesn’t even require you to login to see the most popular tweets. So even if you don’t have a Twitter account, you can see some of the top trending tweets, photos and videos. Twitter probably decided to include this option to attract new potential users into creating an account on this social network.

But if you do have a Twitter account, you’ll have a great experience when you log in. Twitter introduced some features that will increase the functionality of the app, so you’ll be able to use this app just like you use the site, only in fancier, Windows 10 environment. The most notable features of Twitter Windows 10 app are:

  1. Twitter Live Tile, which will show you the latest tweets in your Start Menu
  2. The ability to upload multiple photos
  3. The ability to post the animated GIFs
  4. Vine videos playback
  5. Photo and video tweets are now previewed in your home timeline
  6. Sharing photos privately through Direct Messages

Since the app is built under Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform, we should expect it to be available on Windows 10 also, once the system is ready.

It’s good for Microsoft to have major names associated with its new operating system, because it will encourage users to use more apps from Windows Store, which is one of many purposes of Windows 10. It’s also a good move for Twitter, and other brands, because releasing an app for Windows 10 could be a very good way to promote a product.
