Chirp: A Twitter Client for Vista/7 Users

Description

Chirp is a beautiful Twitter application for those running Windows Vista (or, presumably Windows 7, too) which takes advantage of the OS’s built in graphical subsystem, WPF. With *chirp, you can see unlimited tweets – just keep scrolling down and older tweets will load and display automatically. That’s just one of the features that sets it apart from most other Twitter desktop clients out there.

conversation_chirp Another excellent feature is *chirp’s ability to see the full conversation. To do so, you just have to click on the arrow before the username and your tweet flips in place to reveal the first part of the conversation. Again, a unique feature.

Chirp also lets you follow your favorite Twitterers by adding them to a list of “favs.”

And of course, updating your own Twitter status is easy, too – just click the update icon from the bottom menu or click the reply icon to respond to another tweet.

Chirp is a free download available from http://www.thirteen23.com/experiences/desktop/chirp/. You can also follow them on Twitter at http://twitter.com/chirpapp.

    I personally don't use twitter, and thus won't be using this for the forseeable future, however I do feel it has to be said that WPF is incredibly underused- MS has a technology that can clearly be used to create beautiful programs yet it gets ignored- HUGE shame.
