The official Twitter app for Windows 10 PCs updated this week with some new features to improve direct messages and content discovery.

When viewing a Twitter user’s profile, the app will now display other accounts that you follow who also follow it. DMs have also been improved with drag-and-drop functionality added for media when composing a message and a new DM option for when sharing a tweet.

Here’s the full release notes for this latest update which should be live for most people already given the Progressive Web App (PWA) format of the app.

  • We added support for events that are happening on Twitter! Check this out by clicking or tapping on the search icon.
  • Direct message (DM) improvements: (1) you can now drag and drop 1 video or photo in a DM. (2) We improved the users recommended when you click on “Share via Direct Message” from the share menu on a Tweet.
  • We’ve added followers you know when you visit a profile or hover over a user’s handle or name. This gives you more context on who you might know from their followers.
