Microsoft Reportedly Set To Launch Windows 10 Mobile

Following its release of an updated Twitter for Windows 10 app today, Microsoft is expected to finally come out with Windows 10 Mobile tomorrow.

Microsoft has confirmed, however, that it has released its latest version of Twitter for Windows 10. The updated app lets users view Moments curated tweets, images and videos; share group Direct Messages; edit and tweet videos; and add commentaries with the quote tweet feature, Twitter product designer Angela Lam said today on the Windows Experience blog.
