Windows Phone 8 lock screen notifications also to be available for Facebook and Twitter

fbtwitternotificationsWe already know that the Windows Phone 8 lock screen, which allows apps to add notification icons to the lock screen, will allow notifications from the Skype app.

Now an eagle-eyed reader from has noticed on a screen shot from the Nokia Lumia 920 launch which appears to show the notifications will also be available for Facebook and Twitter.

Of course the notifications are of little use without a quick way to launch these apps, and with Microsoft still keeping a tight lid on Windows Phone 8 features there still remains hope for a Windows Phone 8 notification centre to make an eventual appearance.
