A new major release of the popular Opera browser includes the ability to use Twitter from the sidebar. It is a new addition to Whatsapp, Facebook, and other messengers and social services Opera has integration with.

Using the new Twitter feature directly in Opera makes it more convenient for you to scroll through your feed or search Twitter, says the official announcement.
