New Twitter integration with Live and the People Hub. Left (New) and Right (Old).
Microsoft has evidently updated how Twitter interacts with Live services on Windows Phone by automatically pulling down a contact's Twitter profile an merging it into "Notes".
We're not sure when the change occurred but reader Kaush noticed the difference today which evidently happened when Windows Phone auto-syncs back to the server for contact updates. We managed to break out our international Titan (which we last used a few months ago) to quickly compare for a "before and after".
As an example, under Jay Bennett you can now see his Twitter profile integrated into Notes whereas the device on the right does not have that information.
While this is a small and subtle change, it is certainly good use of the Notes area which often goes unused. So to our readers: is this something really new or have we just missed it?
Thanks, Kaush, for the tip!
