Windows Phone Mango Update Bringing Twitter Integration

If you go into the People Hub of the current version of Windows Phone 7, you’ll find:

– A list of your contacts in “all”
– Status updates from Facebook in “what’s new”
– Tiles of people you recently contacted in “recent” with photos drawn (if available) from a variety of sources including Facebook and Google Sync

Where’s the integration of Twitter in the People Hub? That’s what I wondered when I first used my Windows Phone last November. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that Twitter would be intergrated in Mango at the Mobile World Congress in February. So, we can expect Twitter to be part of the “what’s new” status updates pane in the People Hub later this year.
