It has been pretty amazing watching the progress of the Twitter PWA app on Windows 10 over the last few weeks.
Twitter’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app never gained many of the latest features of the service. No 280 character tweets, no images or sharing of tweets in Direct Messages, and no bookmarking of tweets. Basically, every new capability over the last 6-8 months were non-existent in the official app.
The Twitter PWA became available to Redstone 4 users as an open beta in late March. That began the stream of updates and progress with new capabilities arriving nearly each day.
One of the features I often use multiple times each day is the Share Dialog. I am constantly sharing images, webpage links, or other items around the operating system.
Now, thanks to an update provided in the Twitter PWA app, it can now be targeted in the Windows 10 Share Dialog. That means all those things I like to share with others can once again be easily shared.
Microsoft plans to scan the web for Progressive Web Apps and make them available in the Microsoft Store. This begins after the release of Redstone 4 and it will be interesting to see what other companies do with their PWAs.
