Windows 8 ‘officially’ launched way back in late October of last year. However, developers and enthusiasts have been using it for much longer, so you’d think there would have been an official Twitter app at launch, right? Nope. Instead we didn’t hear that Twitter was working on an app until the ///BUILD developer conference in Redmond. Four months later, we now have Twitter for Windows 8.

We've asked a number of Windows Phone Twitter apps to strip down and reveal their timeline views, but fear not as we'll pixel out any secret areas. Rene Ritchie over at iMore recently compared some Twitter apps as a response to Phil Nickinson's AndroidCentral round-up of Android bird apps, both looking at how timeline views are different (if at all).

Not ones to feel left out, we decided to get involved and tag along, so here's our look at 10 Twitter apps for Windows Phone.

Going, going, going, gone. The popular (and well established) Twitter client for Windows Phone is being pulled and support discontinued, according to a team blog post over on the developer's website. Development has been slow and updates pushed back, but light was at the end of the tunnel when Red Badger tasked an intern developer with the Windows Phone app to bring new features and functionality to the table.

We’ve seen quite a few of the “big players” in Twitter apps for Windows Phone get their respective Windows Phone 8 bump in the last few weeks, so it’s great to see reader favorite Mehdoh get its due.

Mehdoh for Windows Phone 8 get quite a few new additions with the latest update, which is of course, free if you previously purchased the app (or locked it in when it was free). From lockscreen notifications to fast-resume, the Twitter app certainly gets the performance boost from Windows Phone 8’s new APIs and beefier hardware.
