A few days ago, Twitter finally (finally!) released its official Metro app. Called, simply, Twitter, the app doesn’t have the versatility or pedigree of Long Zheng’s MetroTwit. But it works well for single accounts, and because it comes from The Source Itself, it’s likely to remain compatible even if Twitter pulls the rug out from under third-party developers.
The Metro app from Twitter has one serious feature: When you Metro-snap it on the side of the screen, it not only looks good (see screenshot), it’s actually usable for tweeting, and the Share charm works, as long as you don’t have the old-fashioned desktop on screen.
