Twitter has finally launched the native app for Windows 8 and Windows RT. The app is designed to cater the purpose by fitting into “Snap” View, which means to show up single column tweets when docked. The app is available in over 20 supported languages which includes, Chinese (mainland and Taiwan), Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish. The app can be downloaded from the Windows Store directly.

Here’s how Twitter’s described the application:

The Discover (#) icon shows you new topics from people in your network and other information like Trends and Who to Follow suggestions. But nowhere else can you scroll through Discover stories horizontally. Smoothly move through a collage of Tweets, pictures, links and article previews that make the most of your device.

The Share charm makes it easier to tweet links, pictures and opinions to your followers from anywhere in Windows 8. Reading an article in Internet Explorer about Hawaii? Swipe in from the right edge of the device, tap the Share charm, add your comments in the Tweet and hit send.

Create the ultimate screen with Snap view on Windows 8. Drag Twitter into the narrow side of the screen and slide in another favorite app. You can stream a live video while you watch the conversation about it unfold on Twitter. Then use the Share charm to join the discussion.
