Twitter launched its official app for Google Glass on Thursday.

The app lets Google Glass users tweet photos and text, as well as reply to, retweet, or favorite tweets and notifications. When you share a photo using the app, it will automatically put the words, "Just shared a photo #throughglas," in the tweet. If you're one of the elite few who own a pair of Google Glass frames, turn on the Twitter option here.

There was already a third-party app that let users tweet from the wearable tech, but it could only share photos. Twitter was caught testing the a Glass app last month, when a tweet sharing a photo showed the user tweeted using something called "Twitter for Glass."

Facebook also launched its app for Glass on Thursday.
