MetroTwit For Windows  A Cool MetroUI Based Twitter Client (2)

There are plenty of Twitter clients available for Windows and we have already shared two of them called TweetDeck (an air-based software) and TwitKit (Firefox extension). I have to admit that I am not a regular Twitter user but I do use Twitter in several cases. And I always like something gorgeous. Well TweetDeck isn't bad at all, it provides several features that will make your Twitter uses simple and handy. But MetroTwit is simply a cool Twitter client that uses Metro UI. The design of MetroTwit is inspired by the Microsoft Metro design language. It provides an elegant and clean user interface is beautiful to look and also a pleasure to use. It looks simple because it is simple. This Twitter client has all the features expected in on one Twitter client. According to the development team the application is kept overly simple with intuitively designed Multi-planed user interface to tweet, view, and manage your timeline, send direct messages, reply to your peeps, view current trends, categorize favorite tweets and retweets, and lot more. Simply this is one of the best Twitter client I have ever used. So join us after the break for more information.
After installing the application click on sign in and then begin authorization process. You need to enter the verification code generated during the process to sign in in your Twitter account. After this, you are free to use MertroTwit.
The new Twitter client MetroTwit is one of the most sophisticated Twitter clients for the Windows operating system. The software concentrates on Twitter, and keeps everything else to a minimum. The developers have taken inspiration in Microsoft’s Metro design and created their application with it in mind. The interface itself is clean and functional. What I like the most about the new client is the fact that you can add information streams to the interface easily, some even without logging in. By default after logging , it shows three panes containing your friends, mentions, and direct messages.

Underneath these columns, tweet box is present which counts characters as you type. You can either manually refresh updates listed in each pane or let it automatically keep all the panes updated all the time. You can remove the columns to widen the overall space allocated to each pane, however, it also allows stretching the size of any pane.

Can I see the plus button at the bottom? The cross imaged button present in bottom left corner lets you add 4 more panes, which are, Public tweets, Favourite tweets, My tweets, and My retweets, and initiate Twitter and user profile search. All the default panes, if disabled, can be re-enabled by selecting their options from this menu.

All streams are updated automatically by MetroTwit. A refresh button is available in the footer area to refresh all streams manually.

New users should click on the Settings button to open the program settings. Here they can make changes to the display, for instance by switching from a light theme to a dark theme. Alerts and sounds are configured in the settings as well. The Twitter client displays notifications on the desktop whenever new messages are added to one of the streams. It is possible to change sounds and notifications here.
