Twitter images now rendering in People and Picture hubs

It seems Microsoft has worked some magic on backend services for Windows Phone, as users and sites alike are reporting they're now able to view images that are attached to tweets in the People and Picture hubs. Twitter integration is handled via Windows Live, which was introduced in the Mango update, but was limited to displaying text-only tweets. Now when viewing "What's new?" in the People hub (and Pictures hub) images are now displayed along with the tweet.

Have you noticed the change on your handset(s)? Let us know in the comments!

  • Nothing new for me yet.
  • Works for me here in The Netherlands.
  • Can't see anything different here in the UK.
  • The only grip I have with this is that you can only see thumbnails. When you tap them to view the full size image, it launches IE and loads the site, instead of just fetching the picture.
  • Sorry, I misunderstood what I should be looking for... yes, can see pictures with tweets.
  • Being seeing images in tweets for a week now on my UK HTC Titan.
  • Works for me!
  • This is a fantastic site and very engaging too. Excellent work! That’s not really much coming from an amateur publisher like me, but it’s all I could think after enjoying your posts. Not like other site. You really know what you’re talking about too. So much that you made me want to explore more. Your blog has become a stepping stone for me, my friend. Thanks for the detailed journey. I really enjoyed the posts that I have read
