The development team behind popular micro-blogging and social networking service Twitter was glad to announce that the new Twitter for Windows 8 app was rolled out to the public. “We’re excited to bring this Twitter app to Windows 8 users, and hope you’ll enjoy it too,” commented Design Lead, Mike Kruzeniski.

Go get the app and you will also uncover a few new features that tae advantage of the unique features the touch-optimized Windows 8 operating system has to offer.

Twitter for Windows 8 – New Features:

Snap View – lets you use another app alongside the Twitter app. After you snap Twitter to the side of the screen, you can stream a live video for example. So to sum it up, you can keep an eye on Twitter while working with another app.

Landscape View – view a larger photo preview, tap a photo to see it in full screen mode, swipe to view multiple photos in the Discover tab or in a user’s profile, view a user’s photo gallery with ease.

Share Charm – tweet links, pictures, or comments while using another app by using the Share charm. You can easily access it by swiping from the right edge of Windows 8.

Search Charm – this charm helps you search for content on Twitter even though you’re using another app. It works much like the aforementioned Share Charm; it shows up when swiping from the right edge of Windows.

Live Tiles and Notifications – as they show up no matter what app you’re using, these will help you stay on top of what’s happening on Twitter.

The Twitter for Windows 8 app is available in 22 languages: English, Danish, German, Spanish, Finnish, French, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Chinese (PRC), Chinese (Taiwan).
