MetroTwit Desktop Twitter Client [Windows Only]


You might have used many desktop twitter clients like tweetdeck, twhirl, seesmic etc. If you doesn’t know what twitter clients are, then you should read this post 5 Must-try Twitter Clients. We have also seen a cross-platform twitter client SPAZ which works on windows, mac and linux. Today we have another desktop twitter client which is specially developed for Windows Users.

MetroTwit is a desktop twitter client specially developed to simplify the tweeting style of windows users. To be frank, it doesn’t offer anything special like tweetdeck (where you integrate Facebook, myspace, foursquare etc) but yet, it offers a simple and sleek interface and keep things simple.

It fully takes advantage of the latest Microsoft .NET 4.0 and Windows Presentation Foundation 4 frameworks, MetroTwit is a first-class native application that shines on Windows.

All you need to just install it, login using pass or oAuth method and start using it. You can select which columns you need to display like DM. replies, your own feed etc.

Features of MetroTwit :

  • Windows only twitter client based on .net framework. You need .net framework to use it. Don’t have one ? then don’t worry, metrotwit will guide you while you install the app.
  • Windows 7 taskbar integration – You don’t have to switch away from what you’re doing to keep tabs on new tweets. A counter in the taskbar will tell you exactly how many unread messages there are.
  • There are many options to customize, like if you want sounds you can do it, if you want popup’s for specific search list appears you can do it.

The only disadvantage is you can use only 1 account on metrotwit and the advantage is it uses oAuth method for logging in, So you don’t have to provide your twitter credentials, just click and verify it. There are now in Beta, hope they will improve with more features soon.

So, if you’re a windows user, its worth trying out !
