Update released for official Twitter app, likely contains minor improvements and fixes


The official Twitter app has been bumped to version, which (as one can tell) isn't a massive jump on the previous release. We can only assume that this build includes some minor fixes and improvements to address any issues that have been reported since the major upgrade was pushed out late last month.

It's good to see the app become frequently updated, which is a refreshing change to what experienced Windows Phone owners have endured since the app was made available. Notice anything new in the latest update of Twitter? Be sure to shout out in the comments. Should you not have the official app in your arsenal, you can download Twitter from the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, Zeni, for the tip!

Damn it still no Dark Theme :( but glad to see Twitter are finally supporting their app properly

p.a says:

I agree. Black background would look a lot better on a clear black display.

carloswin07 says:

The Lumia900 (my phone!) does have clear black display to what I know.
I love my phone; I just wish I could afford the 920

Banstyle says:

Yeah it will be sorely missed. I don't like my retinas burned every time I want to tweet. :)

benners76 says:

+1,000,000! Loved the optional dark background. Why would they get rid of such a cool (although minor) feature?

ogamawab says:

When you rate the app, let them know. Stress it out on the importance of having a black background.

Can we post a picture yet?

Tomasz S. says:

I love the "pull to refresh" feature. I don't know if it was there earlier, but I just noticed it and it's lovely. It feels so natural. Microsoft should grab and patent it.

Shiroi says:

It's been there before :)

Yes, I love this also. Most include it, but think it should be in all social apps.

Shantek says:

Grab it and patent it? Isn't it a really prominent iPhone feature?

joe_easton says:

Yes, ios uses this

RudyZ says:

It now shows a message in the push setting when you can't receive notifications because you reached your app limit.

Im_Q says:

No more splash screen. I wish they would remove the functional-less Twitter icon at the top. Put the bird in the bird house or something.

Wouldn't it be nice if the bird could at least flap its wings or something? Instead of just sitting there looking like it was......well....stuffed?

Coba1to says:

The bird is where the "real name" of the account in use is shown if you have more than one account added.

csmba says:

This new design seems to waste way too many pixels on the top. Who needs all that space for a bird, and lots of empty?

AskaLangly says:

I got How is this an update?!?

mrjamesmoore says:

Hope it fixes the issue when loading more tweets took you away from the correct position in your timeline.
And yeh what's with that Twiter icon?

NinjaX says:

And I got ?? And can't update

ej1024 says:

No dark theme
No double wide

I have double wide on mine.

ej1024 says:

I have it now

RaRa85 says:

I have the double wide tile as well but does it have any useful functions other than taking up space?

xpxp2002 says:

It doesn't seem to update or anything. And when I tried to resize it back to a small tile it went blank. The Twitter logo was missing. I had to unpin/repin it to get it back.

RaRa85 says:

Maybe they'll take advantage of the space in a future update. That would just about make it complete.

My wpcentral app just went blank...

It says updaterel on the left side

blackhawk556 says:

Tipped them about this couple of days ago. Well hopefully twitter updates this app more often than before.

doomtuba says:

I wish they made the gigantic bar at the top not as thick.

TruPlaya187 says:

Maybe I'm mistaken but we can't save any picture right?

I haven't found a way to save it directly, but you can always take a screenshot and crop the bottom.

TruPlaya187 says:

Thanks for the reply!!!

ogamawab says:

Wish I could take screen shots, I have 7.8 is :/ crying now...

I'm sorry I wasn't aware that 7.8 didn't have screen shot ability. :-(

abond32 says:

Some links you can follow and copy from page

L A N D S C A P E ! ! ! =P

erasure25 says:

V I N E ! ! !

1_RF1 says:

Has anybody else noticed that tweets saved as drafts do not get removed from drafts after the tweets have been sent?

DJCBS says:

Still awaiting the return of the dark theme. Removing it was just stupid.

TruPlaya187 says:

Thanks for the reply also!

AskaLangly says:

I assume different versions for different regions/phones?

Strings78 says:

I am SO happy to see Twitter releasing regular updates for this app! After over 1.5 years of no support, this is a VERY welcome change!

realwarder says:

Thank you Twitter for the updates!  Once upon a time I used RSS... these days Twitter works as a succint news feed.

mrshamoozoo says:

I really want vine. Its pretty cool

Whey there is no updates like this for Facebook ??????????????????????????

Amran Nagal says:

Rumour : Windows phone is going to get a new updated Facebook app in a few months

walter1832 says:

And you heard this from who?

George Lee says:

im still having problem with the push notification counter being stuck at 1 on the lock screen and on the live tile

oscargodson says:

Ha, I can't even get push notifications. None.

kenzibit says:

Our discover feeds isn't as great as on the android and iOS apps. We need more info not just the trending list.

hindsite74 says:

Anyway to delete direct messages yet?

Every account I follow from the app automatically gets signed up for mobile notification (text messages me every time they tweet). Me no likey.

iqbalsn says:

It said that i have too many notification running. What? I only have mehdoh, and whatsap notifying me about things.
Only 2 background app as well, HTC Hub and wpcentral. Weird.

ahlun Lee says:

I have, but the update version in the store shows, yet it still shows up in the store as an update.

ahlun Lee says:

After update, now the version is, looks like a downgrade to me.

rastanac says:

Mine shows ver. after the recent update (Lumia 800 wp7.8)

simccarthy says:

Wow!- after this minor update, Twiiter  app now launches amazingly fast with no need for the twiiter lauch screen! 

mtreef says:

what is that icon of vibration in picture?!!, im looking for that tils! thanks

Tafsern says:

It's Baconit, a Reddit app. 

CrackFachry says:

The push notification doesn't work for me. The setting also has this notice that I have too many apps that use push notification. Woot? There's a limit for push notifications??

abond32 says:

Yes there's a limit

CrackFachry says:

How many apps are allowed to run push motif at the same time? I only listed 4 apps on the backgroud task. Is it include email and Me Hub? Thnx

Tomasz S. says:

It used be 10 in WP7.

BCH says:

Try uninstalling app, then re-installing.  Worked for me.

CrackFachry says:

It Works! Thank you BCH! But now Rowi stoped pushing my mention and messages. I'm quite happy with the Official Twitter tho :)

A few more updates for this app and it will make all 3rd party Twitter apps useless

rastanac says:

Mine shows ver. after the recent update (Lumia 800 wp7.8)

alertwolf says:

After the update before this one I lost the image on the tile, and this one didn't fix it does anyone else have this problem?

slpaige says:

I still have issues with the touch box on each post being offset by one or two posts.

darrenjadams says:

My three main gripes were 1) no live tile, 2) too much space between tweets and 3) too much space taken up by the header and that pointless bird icon. So, nothing to see here. On the plus side, it is quick and simple, which means that it's a good option to have installed.

djctz says:

I love the new Twitter in general very solid Windows App!
