Aeons of cycles after, Twitter finally looks the way of their official Windows Phone app. It’s been almost a year since the last update.

The latest update, live now on the Windows Phone store, comes with a couple of new features that bring it almost at par with its Android and iOS counterparts:

  • Tag friends in photos
  • Upload as many as 4 photos per tweet to your timeline
  • Photos and Vines now auto-preview on your timeline
  • Reply, retweet, favourite and  follow other users straight from your timeline
  • Photos in DMs

There are still a couple of features missing though. Like the ability to mute annoying users, play animated GIFs and embeded timeline tweets. Windows Phone just isn’t getting enough love from Twitter Inc.
