Windows Phone 8.1 has removed much of the social network integration of the OS, but has also provided new hooks for apps to integrate directly with the OS.
Now Microsoft has released a beta of a Twitter app for Windows Phone which takes advantage of these new features and restores much of the earlier twitter integration found in WP8.
It also integrates with Cortana, allowing users to say “new tweet” or Search, and also makes good use of the Action Centre.
The new app can be downloaded by Windows Phone 8.1 owners here.
Update: That was quick! The app is no longer available, and has been unpublished.
