MetroTwit: A Worthy Twitter Desktop Client for Windows (PC)

If you’re looking for that perfect Twitter desktop client for PC, MetroTwit is one you should consider.  Giving you gorgeous column user interface packed with power Twitter users features makes MetroTwit stand out in the crowd.

MetroTwit features a bundle of customizable notifications  with “toaster”, at-a-glance notifications in MetroTwit. If you’re using Windows 7 you can also opt-in to the message counter with Windows 7 taskbar integration. Adding your favorite Twitter list or stream of just one person as a MetroTwit column is as easy as selecting the pin icon when viewing a stream. Each additional column will be automatically resized to make room for the new colum.

After adding about 7 columns, a horizontal scrollbar appeared (results may vary based on your screen size). Once this happened columns stopped resizing automatically and I could still resize any column I wanted to create more space for better visibility. I’ve added 11 columns in MetroTwit with no problems.

When scrolling through messages, MetroTwit ditches the refresh button and instantly begins to pull up more tweets as you scroll further down the column. Not to mention MetroTweet offers auto-completion of usernames and hashtags! We definitely recommend trying this Twitter client out on your PC.  It’s truly a great Twitter desktop client.

  1. From a usability standpoint and my own personal experience Twitter has become less useful, contains more spam and less relevant information to those close to me. It almost seems now more difficult for people to grasp and use, especially first time social media enthusiasts. People ask me, why should I use Twitter it makes no sense to me?

    Content now is almost like an article linking contest everyday with people posting other people’s news stories.

    Wasn’t the original idea of Twitter to share…”What are you doing right now?” so your friends can be in the know?
