Official Twitter for Windows Phone app gets new theme and lockscreen features

twitter 3_0

The official Twitter app has slowly become one of the best Twitter apps available for Windows Phone. Today it has been updated to version 3.0, and several new features have been added. The main new features include a brand new option for dark or light theme and the ability for Twitter to be the lockscreen wallpaper.

Those that have been using the official Twitter app for a while might remember that there used to be a dark theme, but when Twitter switched to the new design they got rid of it. In version 3.0 they have added it back, but we have to say we preferred the look of the old dark theme. Twitter has also added the ability to display Tweets on your losckscreen, as seen above.

Other features for this update include customizing what accounts can send notifications, pin keyword searches to Start, improvements to Search and Discover, and new languages. You can download the update for free below on Windows Phone 8 devices.
