There are many Windows Phone users who say they do not need a 3rd party Twitter app due to the built-in functionality in the Windows Phone People Hub.

The trick is simply to place a D in front of the twitter name, which will convert the tweet to a direct message. 

As can be seen from the screen shot above, it seems to work pretty well.
