Twitter for Windows 10

Earlier this year, social media giant Twitter announced its new Progressive Web App (PWA) for Windows 10 and it’s available on Microsoft Store. Twitter’s PWA for Windows 10 is a big update as it brings a ton of recent features such as extended character limit, the ability to bookmark tweets, translation and much more.

Twitter yesterday rolled out an update for its Windows 10 app with support for faster image uploads and rotation. It appears that the app would work on some older devices as well.

What’s new in the latest update for Twitter PWA

  • Some changes that should GREATLY speed up image uploads on all devices.
  • New update to Windows App to allow some older devices and screen rotation.

Twitter PWA developer, Charlie Croom confirmed in a tweet that the new update for the platform is now available.

It’s worth noting the app has been optimised for the latest Windows 10 April 2018 Update.

“This release represents a renewed commitment to Windows that has been long overdue and is part of a longer-term strategy to reach greater feature parity to all of our platforms. We wanted to make sure the app represented a modern Twitter experience, while taking advantage of unique Windows features, like support for Windows native APIs such as share integration, pinned tiles, jump links, and more. We want to continue providing our Microsoft users with the latest and greatest, and will be adding additional features like night mode, in the coming weeks and months,” said Charlie Croom, Web Engineer at Twitter in a blog post published earlier this year.
