On Windows Phone we have the official Twitter app, but we also have a healthy selection of third-party alternatives. Twitter is a big social network with millions of users all wanting to use the service in different and unique ways. You might be content with the official Twitter app. However there are a handful of others who love third-party apps for the features they bring to the table. Which is your favorite?

Something has changed today on Twitter’s backend, and it’s causing some issues for Windows Phone users. We have received numerous complaints that when you press on an individual tweet to view it, the app will crash. Just browsing the Twitter stream and posting still work, but if you tap a tweet to bring up the details page, your app may suddenly close out.

We've been asked the question, "what's the best Twitter app" countless times. Simply put: there isn't one. Well, not really anyway. App choices are entirely subjective to personal preferences and likes. An app we may recommend may not be up your street and you might have another app installed on a Windows Phone. Unfortunately, since there are a handful of apps out there on the store, it can prove rather daunting as a new user to the platform to locate a Twitter client. Luckily, Liquid Daffodil has released a new app to help with that.

Cue Twitter App Pinpointer.

Last week we had a nice little surprise with the Twitter beta app leaking. The app is optimized for Windows Phone 8.1 and includes the Social Extensibility framework, which I detailed recently. If you use Twitter and 8.1, the app is pretty fantastic due to the ability to use the Share picker and the deeper integration with the OS.

Unfortunately, the beta was meant to be private, meaning none of you were supposed to have access to that link. This is also why we were unsurprised when the app disappeared from the Store just a few hours after being covered by tech sites.

Now, there seems to be another step being taken: the app is being disabled for some users. We should clarify that this is not Microsoft revoking the app, which results in a pop-up message noting such an occurrence and the app literally being uninstalled from your phone. But rather, this is evidently a check to see if those of you who have it, are also on the beta list.

Windows Phone 8.1 has a lot going on under the hood, from unified app stores with Windows 8.1 to new tools for developers. One of those tools is dubbed the ‘Social Extensibility Framework’ and while an odd term, it will have vast consequences for Windows Phone users going forward.

In case you’re wondering, this is the ‘What happened to Facebook in Windows Phone 8.1?’ discussion. While some of you have lamented the changes, no doubt due in part to habit, in the long run this improved architecture alteration will give companies a more consistent and unified approach to Windows Phone.

Update 7:45 PM ET: As predicted, the beta app has now been unpublished from the Store

After the dust has settled with the Preview of Windows Phone 8.1, early adopters are noticing quite a few changes, some of which are causing some speed bumps. For instance, Twitter. The app works quite well on 8.1, but the ability to Share to the app has disappeared and it doesn’t fully leverage the capabilities of the 8.1 operating system.

The beta build of the app is circulating in an open beta, though it's sure to be closed now that it has leaked publicly. Regardless, here’s what to expect in Twitter for Windows Phone 8.1...

Twitter apps are pretty invaluable. They’re also highly personal. What’s super important to you may be trivial to me. That’s why it’s important to find the app that fits your needs. That’s also why it sucks when that app gets killed off. Today, that app is MetroTwit for Windows 8 and desktop.

The culprit? Once again it’s the access token limit imposed by Twitter on third party developers. We’ve seen this system kill off apps before, recently Rowi on Windows Phone.

The official Twitter app on Windows 8 sucks. It hasn’t seen an update in months and it doesn’t even fully take advantage of the unique new features in Windows 8.1. It’s just not that great, which is unacceptable for an app and company with over 2,000 employees and a market cap of $31.44 billion. Twitter claims north of 230 million users and we think those users on Windows 8 deserve a great Twitter app. Thank heaven for Tweetium.

There are a handful of official apps on Windows Phone for all the various social networks out there. Google+ is of course notably absent, but why use that when we’ve got Twitter and Instagram. We have official apps for both Instagram and Twitter, but we also have solid third-party clients from the strong developer community on Windows Phone. Be sure you never miss a moment of Windows Phone news by following Windows Phone Central across your social networks.
