When it comes to Twitter, there are many options for consuming the content that propagates across the popular social network. But, if you are looking for a Twitter client that has the look and feel of Metro, a robust feature set, and of course, runs only on Windows, MetroTwit is the client you have been waiting for, and the group behind it is now proudly shipping version 1.0.
For a little background on MetroTwit, it is built by Long Zheng, David Golden and Winston Pang and is a homegrown project that brings the best of Metro to the Twitter universe. Long posted on his site, istartedsomething.com, that MetroTwit was a concept two years ago and was, at that time, simply an image created in Photoshop (posted below).
Two years later, the group is pushing version 1.0 out the door and Neowin is giving away 15 MetroTwit Plus codes which will remove the advertisements from the product.
To enter this giveaway, simply reply to this thread about why you love MetroTwit, limited to one entry per user for the entire duration of the contest that will end on Friday, March 30th at 11:59PM.
If you have already been using MetroTwit, you will love the change log as it is packed with updates that literally has something for everyone; you can view the log here.
MetroTwit is a compelling alternative to every Twitter client out there and we can safely and highly recommend that you give it a download as it truly is a magnificent Twitter client.
