Twitter is an interesting social network. Since it began almost a decade ago, millions of tweets have been fired into cyberspace and many of us have carefully managed who we follow to prevent clutter on the timeline, which is inevitable as one becomes more popular and interacts with other Twitter profiles.

There's a free, easy solution to the above problem, in the name of a sweet little Windows Phone app called UnfollowSpy, enabling you to keep up-to-date with new followers, those who have unfollowed you, as well as inactive profiles you follow and those who don't return the favour.

Ever had a quick browse through your lists and thought, "Why am I following them?" With UnfollowSpy, you'll now be able to easily manage exactly who you're interacting with.

On Twitter more than you should be? Then you’re probably familiar with and either love or hate Follow Fridays. What’s that? On Fridays, Twitter users will usually share a bunch of users they think their current crop of follows should follow. You’ve probably seen us do it a few times with the @wpcentral account on a Friday here and there. It’s popular among those social butterflies and especially anyone who manages an account on Twitter for a brand. Hashtastic is an app for Windows Phone users that makes #FF super simple.

Version 3.0 of the Official Twitter app for Windows Phone brings a handful of new features

The official Twitter app for Windows Phone was last updated back in June and that was after its major overhaul in February of this year. Today version 3.0.0.0 has landed on the store and if that should ring a bell, it means a major version change and not just a few fixes or enhancements.

Loading up the app and heading into settings we find a surfeit of new and welcomed changes, including the much coveted “dark” theme. While the default light theme was always sharp looking, dark (along with that Twitter category bar at the top) looks especially elegant.

But besides that new theme, there are a few other changes, let’s take a look.

The latest update improves functionality and adds features. Let’s check it out.

It's a sad day, folks. Rowi has announced that their free version of their popular Twitter client for Windows Phone has reached the 100,000 user limit for tokens.  This has provided the team with no other choice but to pull the app from the store. The paid version is still available though and if you previously purchased it, you'll have no problems should up switch to a new phone. In fact, there's nothing for paid users to worry about.

TweetLive is an interesting app for our Windows Phones that builds a tweet wall on your Windows Phone.  Once you authorize the app to access your Twitter account, you can search for tweets by keyword and have them randomly displayed on your Windows Phone.

Retweets are filtered so you won't see duplicates and the background cover automatically changes to keep things mildly interesting. Tweets cycle through about every five seconds and you can always pull up the search field and change things up.

The developer of popular Twitter client for Windows Phone, MeTweets has voiced concerns about the social network regarding access to Site Streams. Kicking off a petition, the developer desires to implement support into the backend of MeTweets, but states that Twitter restricts third party access to that specific API as it's still in beta. Unfortunately, this beta stage was kicked off back in 2010 and it's not clear that will change anytime soon.
