Twitter PWA adds support for Emojis in the DM section with the latest update


Twitter has updated its web app Twitter PWA on the Microsoft store. The new update brings lots of fixes and improvements and a new feature. With the latest update, you can now send real emojis in the Twitter DM section.

Now this being a server-side update all you need to do is just open and close the app and then re-open it to get the update. Otherwise, you can read the official changelog below.


  • Direct messages (widescreen only): Emoji Picker is now available when you’re writing a DM on your computer or tablet! Click on the emoji icon to open it and express yourself


  • Images: we are more intelligent about which image to display in the timeline based on the pixel density of the person’s screen. The result is a faster experience on newer phones with a high pixel density.
  • Image Cropper: we have adapted the zoom behavior when adjusting a loaded image. It seems a lot more natural now.
  • Accessibility: the way a screen reader identified the emoji icon that opens the emoji picker was vaguely labeled (‘Button’). The label has been improved and its purpose is now very clear (‘Add Emoji’).


  • Internationalization: solved the order of social proof phrases (for example “@Twitter Retweeted”) in languages that read from right to left.
  • Stability: adjusted the charging logic of the app to prevent the endless reloads that some people were experiencing.
  • Scrolling: a hidden bug that allowed pull-to-refresh to work in places it should not have. Pull-to-refresh is again correctly contained.
  • Direct messages: when sharing a tweet via DM, the message text box was not automatically focused, which made it necessary to add a message to add a message. Attention should be automatic now.
