Twitter to roll out new features for Web and Windows App
Twitter on yesterday posted a tweet that it is going to roll out some modern features for its mobile website Twitter Lite and Twitter for windows. Both the mobile and web version of Twitter now can support night mode to the app, real-time updates on reply, Retweet, and updated Tweet compose box.
However, these are not the biggest updates Twitter introduced but they are handy when you don’t want to use the “full” native apps on the mobile devices. Since it is a Progressive Web App (PWA) so, the changes are made at the back end and users are not needed to update the app via play store.
We are rolling out the following features to https://t.co/AIUgyCj4rs, Twitter Lite, and Twitter for Windows to provide more consistency across platforms. See what’s new. 👇
✔ night mode
✔ real time updates on reply, Retweet, and like counts
✔ updated Tweet compose box

On the other hand, The updated Tweet box helps to move more easily across the tweet and timeline.
