Following Microsoft's announcement and v1.0 release of the long awaited Twitter application for its Zune HD media player earlier this week, Microsoft recently released a slightly updated version which isn't censoring nasty words anymore, as the initial release did. Microsoft's Twitter application for Zune HD lets users read its own timeline, mentionings and direct messages as well searching Twitter for keywords or hash-tags and seeing the list of followers and people the user follows. Furthermore it allows to send new tweets, reply to tweets as well as sending direct messages to followers. Tweets can even include an information which song (song name and artist) the Zune HD is currently playing.

To use Twitter on the Zune HD, the device has to be connected to an available WiFi (which can be - for sure - also a Novatel Wireless MiFi router, unfortunately HTC'S HD2 Wi-Fi Router seems not to work) connection. There's no outbox available for written tweets which might be send the next time the device is either connected to a WiFi network or PC for synchronization.

Twitter v1.1 for Zune HD is now available in the Zune Marketplace. It can be either download to the PC client and installed from there or directly downloaded to the device.

Cheers ~ Arne
