The recent update to the Twitter app from the Windows Store now lets you attach your favorite lists and profiles to your Windows 8 Start screen.
Combined with the Windows 8.1 release that lets you customize the Start screen, you can allocate a section of the Start screen for the Twitter profiles and lists that interest you the most. Here’s how to do it:
From the Windows 8 Twitter app, get to the list or user profile that you want to attach on the screen, then right-clickon the window. If you possess a tablet or touch screen, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen. Tap or select the “Pin to Start,” located in the lower left-hand corner. When the list or user profile tile pops up, provide a name to the tile, then tap or click on the blue “Pin to Start” button.
