When Microsoft rolled out Windows Phone a couple of years ago, there was a Twitter app released for it, but it does sound rather amazing at the moment that there was nobody out there to set up a server-side option which paved the way to push live tiles or notifications for Twitter activity, including mentions or direct messages. This paved the way for folks to come up with a wide range of third party Twitter apps which were far more functional compared to the standard issue Twitter app. Good to know that developers over at Twitter have finally come up with an official update, delivering push notifications for direct messages, mentions, new follows, favorited tweets, and retweets.
What you see above are the new settings screen, which enables you to customize just the right kind of notifications that you would want to see appear. The pop-up menus enable you to select on whether your eyes are free enough to view notifications from anyone, or if you are more private, just your followers, or for those who want to be quiet and lie low, no one at all. There is also features a live tile that will flip over, displaying the most recent notifications. Anyone given the new app a go, and how do you find it so far?
