I do actually intend to snag MetroTwit at some point. I was referring more to the Desktop side of things. I've always liked MetroTwit (and know some of the team) but still always gravitate back to TweetDeck on desktop.
I first tried MetroTwit when it was originally plugged here on Neowin, back when Windows 8 was still in beta (and it was a Win32 applicaiton then - hence a direct competitor to HootSuite). If anything, it's seriously improved performance-wise since it became a straight RT app. When I mentioned the Election Night thrashing I gave it, I wasn't kidding - over half the Twitter accounts I started following came out of that thrash. HootSuite had serious issues following that many threads at once, which is why I never really pushed it; MetroTwit is like that infamous bunny. (A desktop version of MetroTwit remains available for non-ModernUI fans and those not running 8.) Because HootSuite, like MetroTwit, is full-screen-only, I lost nothing in the switch. TweetDeck reminds me FAR too much of Trillian, which I despise.
