The Opera browser already includes a sidebar with links to several messaging apps. Now the company has added Twitter support, too, as part of Opera 69.
Twitter, like Instagram, Telegram, Facebook Messenger and other messaging apps, will reside in the Opera sidebar, which lives on the left rail by default. Sidebars have increasingly become ways in which some browsers, such as Firefox and Vivaldi, have integrated additional functionality.
With Opera 69, Twitter can be embedded in the sidebar, though youâ€™ll have to enable it. To do so, click the three-dot icon at the bottom of the sidebar, then click Twitter in the Messengers section. (That will probably require you to click a small Show more link as well to expand the Messenger section.) Twitterâ€™s main feed, the search function, as well as direct messaging are all enabledâ€”the sidebar version is essentially a web widget, with even Twitterâ€™s new tweet scheduling function enabled.
