Twitter Beta for WP 8.1

wp_ss_20140418_0006Along with WP 8.1 the People hub integration of Facebook and Twitter were essentially removed, meaning some pretty cool sharing features were no longer there. Now Microsoft have released the Twitter Beta for WP 8.1 which brings back some of that functionality indirectly. The app is integrated into the action center, but also has links in with Cortana for voice commands such as “new Tweet” or “search”.

The app also seems slightly more responsive when clicking on a toast notification (less blank loading pages)but that could be a placebo effect. The app also supports social sharing of screeshots directly form the gallery (was removed with 8.1 for some reason).

For now grab the app (if you have WP 8.1) from the link below:
