Today we’re introducing a new version of Twitter for Windows Phone. In addition to a new design, which brings the app in line with other Twitter apps, this update includes several features that make it easier for you to discover and share the content that matters to you.
Tonight was Hollywood’s biggest night for celebrating film, and Twitter hosted a global Oscars party. Whether you were cheering on your favorite nominees or just checking out behind the scenes pictures, Twitter united the audience at home with attendees at the show, bringing them closer to the glitz and glam.
Just like the movies that the awards celebrate, the Oscars show always delivers a mix of drama and comedy, suspense and surprises, and tears and cheers. As the audience in the Dolby Theatre claps, laughs, and cries, so do the viewers at home. Watching along with Twitter, you can have the best of both worlds: get insider access from stars who know the Oscars best, and join fellow film fans in a global viewing party.
From the red carpet to the Dolby Theatre to their own couches at home, this year’s live-tweeting cast includes:
Awards season is in full swing, and tonight’s big show is all about celebrating the best in Latin music. The 25th annual Premio Lo Nuestro music awards show will air on Univision at 8pm ET/ PT; the red-carpet kickoff, La Noche De Estrellas, starts one hour earlier at 7pm ET/ PT. Tune in to Twitter for both, and you won’t miss a beat.

Over the past couple of days, there’s been a fair amount of conversation about account security on Twitter. We thought we’d take advantage of this moment to remind you of best practices around passwords – both on Twitter and on the Internet generally.
Each year the President’s State of the Union speech, and the opposition response that follows it, ignites a national conversation about a host of issues. Tonight’s #SOTU address and response drew more than 1.36 million Tweets.
