Twitter for Windows by clindhartsen Twitter for Windows by clindhartsen
With Twitter clients a dime a dozen, and the service's push to create their own clients on their different platforms, why not provide the Windows world a first class client?

Thus, Twitter for Windows. Taking cues from the popular Echofon on the Mac, as well as MetroTwit on Windows, plus some cues from Twitter for Windows Phone, the application would take a very clean, focused appearance, providing users a straight forward UI to tweet to their heart's content.

Not as complex and in-depth as TweetDeck or MetroTwit, the client would be more for the novice user, functionality in the screen focused on one portion of the service, not columns and columns searches and options

Any thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

*To explain the layout above, the left most window would be the primary view that the user would get with the option to look at their main stream, @ replies, direct messages, lists, and search. The second view is an example of what a profile would look like, the slider coming out of the application and presenting that users latest tweets, profile, and their states. The right most would be the application's ability to be mounted to the left or right of the user's screen, always on top, to be there while the user does other things.

Twitter for Windows Series (part of Metrofy):

Is there a reason why it has become cool to have a window border that looks different from the system? Like, why is it a good idea to have an all white window when 95% of windows on... well... Windows... are see-through? I just don't get it.

For some in the enthuiast community, it's interesting to see what a more flat, clean looking application style for Windows, Metro-style if you will, would be like, vs. the inconsistency that has been Aero and glass since the Vista launch.

Don't be sad or mad, but I think mine looks better. Still there is a bit similar interface...

This looks great, but it's too simple IMHO.
A Twitter client should provide more functionnality than the web interface, because otherwise it isn't really useful.

And that kind of client I don't want, I want simple client and there isn't many in Windows. :P Many are too many things and some are made with AIR, that I really hate.

Have you tried out DestoryTwitter? It's actualyl a really good AIR client, which I know is hard to believe seeing TweetDeck, but it is!

Yeah I have. It's okey, but it's not still doesn't feel right. Best ones are IMO MetroTwit and TweetDeck on Chrome.

Have you tried Echofon on the Mac? Its a great client and doesn't do much more.

Well, that's personal preference (hence the "IMHO" in my comment).
Twitter should consider Metro-yfing their website though, this mockup looks great.
