Tweetium app for Windows 8.1 gets a big update, likely the best Twitter client in the Windows Store Written by Ron on December 19, 2013, 01:10PM
The developer behind Tweetium has rolled out a new update to the app, adding a plethora of new features and fixes based on consumer feedback. We have been using Tweetium since its release last week and we have to argue that this app is likely one of the best Twitter apps available in the Windows Store today.
"Tweetium is the premium Windows 8 Twitter client you've been waiting for. It's slick. It's fast. This first release has been designed with ample feedback from serious Twitter users, with the goal of helping you get the most out of Twitter on Windows desktops, laptops, and tablets. Tweetium is a brand new app designed and developed by the maker of the critically acclaimed Newseen," the app description reads.

As you can see, this app was given one heck of an update. At the moment, there is no trial version available due to Twitter's API token restrictions, but hopefully that will change. Hit the download link below to snag the updated app. If you do not see the update right away, be patient, you will see it eventually since the update was just made available in the Windows Store.
