Our favorite Twitter app just got better: Tweetium for Windows 8 updated to v2.4Written by Ron on March 31, 2014 - 02:50PM @ronwinbeta
Tweetium has been our favorite Twitter app for Windows 8 and the app continues to become better with new features, improvements, and fixes. Today, the developer behind the app has rolled out version 2.4 of Tweetium, adding Push notification support (beta) for Pro users.
In the latest update, Tweetium has increased the multiple account limit to seven accounts for Pro users. The app also has improved URL recognition to match Twitter's implementation, ensuring tweet character counts are always correct. Switching accounts will now save the last read state of the current view and the app also features improved DM conversation interactions in vertical mode. Push notifications have also been added for Pro users, however the feature is still in Beta.
