Twitter users that buy Firefox OS phones when they launch later this year will be able to download the official app immediately, the company has confirmed.

According to the firm, Twitter for Firefox OS will be similar to its other mobile apps. It will come with the same Home, Connect, Discover, and Me tabs, along with search and compose Tweet icons.

The app will have one unique feature though, thanks to Firefox OS. Users will be able to tweet photos directly out of any app that also supports Web activity, including Firefox OS’ built-in photo app.

Yesterday ZTE announced the world’s first Firefox OS-based smartphone, the ZTE Open.
