Even though Windows Phone always had Twitter cooked native into the OS, it was always lacking Live Tile support which forced you to go third party for extra features. It seems that everyone using Twitter on WP used a third party app. Using iOS and Android, the Twitter app has always been pretty good, and really good with the altest releases. So much that my third party app of choice has gotten shelved. Now Twitter for WP has gotten some update love in a big way with a major refresh. Kicking off things with some Live Tile support that will better keep you connected with all those customizable tiles. Now you will not have to rely on any more third party apps for your start screen to have a true Live Tile notifications.
