The official Twitter app for Windows Phone has just received a shiny new, and pretty major, update today, after several months of inactivity. This update includes a number of new features.

The change log shows that this new 3.2 version of the app has the following additions, many of which involve improvements in the sharing and uploading of photos:

VPN Deals: Lifetime license for $16, monthly plans at $1 & more

  • Tag your friends in a photo to start a conversation.
  • Capture the moment by uploading multiple photos to a single Tweet.
  • Tweets with Twitter photos, Vine videos and other select content now show a preview in your home timeline
  • You can reply, retweet, favorite or follow someone straight from a Tweet in your home timeline.
  • Share photos through Direct Messages.

This is certainly a big update for the official Twitter app, and it happens to show up just before the rumored full roll out of the Windows Phone 8.1 over-the-air update is slated to begin.

You can download the new 3.2 Twitter app update right now in the Windows Phone Store. Will you be grabbing this update today?
