Twitter will be reconnected to Windows Live


The micro-blogging service Twitter will make its comeback to Windows Live within 2011. This is what the developer beta for Windows Phone Codename “Mango” indicates.

Damaster, contributing to the Windows Live news site LiveSide, found out:

Today while I was setting up my Windows Phone “Mango” beta and see if I could add my Twitter account to my phone, I was greeted with this dialogue: “To add Twitter on your phone, you’ll need to connect it to your Windows Live account.”

We may conclude that Twitter will be available for Windows Live this fall, when Windows Phone Mango is shipping.

As Twitter changed their privacy policy back in summer 2010, the service connection to Windows Live had been removed. When the Windows Live team re-adds Twitter, advanced features like retweeting and replies will be available as well.
