MetroTwit for Windows is a sleek Twitter client that integrates perfectly with your Windows desktop in an attempt to provide all the features and functionalities of the official Twitter app from your desktop. It not only lets you manage multiple Twitter accounts quickly and flawlessly, but it enables you to do it with convenient features not offered with the traditional Twitter interface.

Based on Microsoft's Metro design, MetroTwit lets you track your Twitter activities from an attractive, intuitive, and feature-packed interface. Using the messaging utility, you can get quick access to notifications, timelines, mentions, and direct messages for one or more accounts: making staying in touch from your work, personal, or alter-ego accounts easy.

Images can be attached to tweets, which are easily written and posted from the bottom of the window. If you make a mistake or have a change of mind, the Undo feature lets you correct or delete a tweet quickly and easily. MetroTwit also lets you easily refresh your content, follow other users, create and view lists, view trending topics, and search for tweets and people. Also, the instant messaging and VoIP tool gives you almost real-time interaction with the popular social media site.

Customization includes a day and night mode, and a themed backgrounds feature for the sidebar and a notification pause feature that lets you control notifications both visually and audibly. MetroTwit doesn't consume a lot of CPU power or RAM. Its refresh rate is fast, and it runs smoothly on most systems, so it won't crash Windows or cause a pop-up error dialog.

More advanced features include staying in the know with the latest hashtags using "What The Trend"; Follow entire Twitter conversations with breadcrumb feature; Quick-glance notifications lets you read excerpts from new tweets in a continuous cycle in the notifications; Resizable and re-orderable columns lets you choose exactly how your columns to display; Infinite scrolling lets you read more tweets by just scrolling down.
