Twitter update on Windows Phone not just skin deep: Quicker access to tweets that matter to you

Good news to all you tweet-happy folk: A new Twitter update on Tuesday adds more options for your backdrop, so you can choose between a dark or light theme. But the changes are more than just skin deep. You can now select your favorite Twitter accounts and receive notifications when they tweet. You can also pin keyword searches to your home screen for quick access to tweets on a topic.

Your Twitter account will always be up-to-date with direct message syncing – read a message on your Windows Phone and it’s marked as already read on your Windows PC. Another bonus: Set your language preference and get tweets translated in your timeline – with support for 13 additional languages.

If you haven’t joined the conversation on Twitter yet, now is a good time to start. Install Twitter for free from the Windows Phone Store.
