Tweetz Is A Simple, Attractive And Efficient Desktop Twitter Client

Windows: With MetroTwit shutting down, you might be looking for a new desktop Twitter client. Tweetz is a good option to consider if you don’t need power tools but want a clean and simple interface for Twitter.

You can only see one column at a time, but there are a few buttons in the toolbar to cycle through the different columns available: unified timeline, home, mentions, messages, favourites, search and settings. You can toggle between a light and dark theme, have a notification sound for new tweets and choose to show inline media.

The last buttons activates the Compose pane, which lets you write a message, attach photos and shorten links. It works as expected, but it doesn’t read through the people you follow to give you autocomplete suggestions when you type “@” or “#”.

Power users will miss several elements. There is no support for lists, for instance. And you can’t mute or set up filters for people or hashtags. Weirdly, there’s no icon in the Windows taskbar when the app is running either, so the only way to access it is through Alt+Tab. Still, Tweetz is a good desktop client for the casual Twitter user, especially since it’s free.
