Since its debut in March, the Twitter Progressive Web App (PWA) for Windows 10 has received a number of tweaks, most of which have served to squash bugs and smooth out the overall experience. The latest update, however, brings a big addition for Windows fans: support for Live Tiles (via HTNovo).
The app now allows users to navigate to a particular Twitter profile and pin it to their Start menu as a tile. Small, medium, and large tile sizes are supported, and you can pin as many as you want. Each tile will show the profile picture and information about the profile you've pinned, and clicking or tapping it will take you directly to that profile within the Twitter app.

Since the Twitter app is a PWA, Twitter can make changes on its end and apply them to the app without requiring an app update through the Microsoft Store, as would typically be the case with a standard Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app. That means that any future changes Twitter makes to its platform should immediately be available to the PWA.
For now, the Twitter PWA is still in testing and is only available for Windows Insiders running Redstone 4 and 5 builds. Once the Windows 10 spring update is released, the PWA app should be available more widely to the public.
