MetroTwit is a Twitter client for your Windows system. It brings additional features and functions that you couldn’t enjoy when you were accessing and using Twitter in the classic way: as a page in your web browser.
The first word that comes to my mind when looking at MetroTwit is “elegant”. The interface is not only neat and intuitive, but really good-looking. It also supports two different skins (dark text on light background or vice versa), being suitable for those who like to bring some variety into their lives from time to time. Other design customization options are also available.
When it comes to features, MetroTwit leaves no room for complaint. Everything you could do when you were using Twitter in your web browser, you can do using MetroTwit too, but in a simpler, easier and faster manner. Checking new tweets, tweeting, re-tweeting, replying to tweets or to messages, adding tweets to favorites, and many more – all these can be done in a really enjoyable manner when using MetroTwit. Furthermore, MetroTwit offers specific features such as a “tweet” undo function that lets you cancel the “tweeting” of a status update. The commercial, “Plus” version of this application also comes with support for multiple accounts.
Anyway, the thing I like the most about MetroTwit is its notification system that helps you know when you receive new Twitter messages or when new tweets are posted, without having your work or desktop activity hindered in any way.
As you can see, MetroTwit is a nice addition to your collection of applications, especially if you are an avid Twitter user. The fact that it is free makes it even more desirable.
