We’re really not sure why it took so long for Twitter to introduce support for notifications in its Windows Phone app. My guess is that they don’t think Microsoft’s platform has reached the tipping point yet, with a majority of smartphone users now owning an Android device or the Apple iPhone.
Anyway, it’s good to see the new version of the Twitter app hitting Windows Phone Marketplace, bringing the so much needed notifications to the table. Yup, this means your Windows Phone will now alert you in real-time on mentions, retweets and direct messages.
From the options screen you can select when do you want Twitter to push notifications to you – on mentions, Favorited, retweets, DMs and/or new followers. In addition, although there is no Live Tile counter, the Tiles do flip to show you new mentions or notifications in addition to the Toast alerts…
So if you own a Windows Phone you’ll want to update. It’s that simple.
