Update: Well it looks like the Windows Phone Store has made an error and posted old version numbers and change logs with a new date for the Twitter Windows Phone app. Our apologies for jumping the gun on this.

Original story: The last time the Twitter app for Windows Phone got a big update was in January. Now the app has received a major update for the first time in over six months, adding in a number of features that are already available to Twitter users on iOS, Android and on the web.

Here's what users can expect from this update, which brings the version number to

  • Tweets with Twitter photos, Vine videos, and other select content now show a preview in your home timeline.
  • Share photos privately in Messages
  • You can reply, retweet, favorite, or follow someone straight from a Tweet in your home timeline.
  • Capture the moment by uploading multiple photos to a single Tweet.
  • Upload animated gifs and view in your home timeline.
  • Conversations are easy to find and join. Reply, retweet or favorite straight from a Tweet!
  • See what's happening right now without being logged in to your account.

At the moment, it's not clear if Twitter has also updated the Windows 8.1 version as well.
