MetroTwit Review

Sven Sorensen
A (discontinued) Twitter client built on modern a Windows interface with unlimited scrolling
A review of MetroTwit by Sven Sørensen

MetroTwit is a small and now discontinued Twitter client for Windows. It was available as both a Windows 8 Metro app and a Windows desktop client, but has since been removed from the Windows store.

The program is effectively a Windows-based Twitter client which accesses Twitter with an API. Unfortunately due to access limits imposed by Twitter, the developers of MetroTwit discontinued it. With that said, the current version still works and provides a way to interact with Twitter without having to use their web site.

Entering tweets with MetroTwit is pretty simple and like regular Twitter, is limited to 140 characters. You may also use MetroTwit to manage and tweet from multiple Twitter accounts.

The layout of MetroTwit is an interesting one and it fits with other modern Windows apps. Text is clear and readable. The icon scheme follows that of other Windows 8 apps.

All-in-all, the application can be useful and is very easy-to-use.

MetroTwit features and highlights:
  • Infinite scrolling: If you ever want to read more tweets, just scroll down and more will appear almost instantly
  • URL shortening and previews: Take control of links with an intuitive URL shortener that automatically saves you space and time tweeting
  • Autocomplete for usernames & hashtags: The people and topics you care about, at your fingertips. Simply start typing any part of a username or hashtag and we'll find them for you
  • Resizable and reorderable columns: Not all columns must be created equal. You have the choice and flexibility to control exactly how your columns should look

MetroTwit is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from instant messaging software without restrictions. MetroTwit 1.1.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
