MetroTwit Launches with Windows 7 Integration

A new Twitter client application inspired by Microsoft’s Metro design language has now launched. The aptly named MetroTwit is a Windows desktop application that uses .NET 4.0 and WPF 4 to power the app’s gorgeous interface and back-end. Designed by Long Zheng, David Golden and Winston Pang, MetroTwit offers a number of unique features, beyond the usual timeline view and status update box, found in other clients. For example, infinite scrolling, autocomplete for usernames and hashtags, resizable and reorderable columns, flawless high DPI support and others are listed on the project’s homepage as features you’ll “fall in love with.” (Indeed, I have).
Also included is what may be the standout feature for Windows 7 users: taskbar integration. A counter in the taskbar shows you how many unread messages you have.
Another notifications feature also lets you read experts from new tweet updates, replies and more as they cycle through in the notifications.
You can download MetroTwit from here. Note that the app is in beta, so all the usual caveats apply.
