Blu – desktop twitter client for Vista / Windows 7

Blu is a desktop twitter app developed for Windows Vista / Windows 7. It requires .NET framework 3.5 and since .NET 3.5 is not available for XP, Blu would only run on Vista or higher versions.

Update: Through comments on this post we found out that .NET 3.5 is available for Windows server 2003 and XP too! So this client should probably work for XP users.

There are a lot of cool features in this app. You can view unlimited tweets. No restrictions whatsoever. Scroll your timeline and all the previous tweets would be displayed to you.

Blu displays how many characters you have left using large numbers behind your tweet so you know when you’re about to run out of space. You can view conversation threads too! Now the next time you get a reply, don’t scratch your head wondering the context of the reply.

URLs are automatically converted to tiny url and you can expand a short url to view the actual link.

A unique feature of Blu would be the Fav option. You might be following a lot of people, but there would be a few whose tweets you just can’t miss. Fav such twitter users and you’ll be notified whenever they tweet.

Quickie

  • Unlimited tweets
  • New Tweets and inline replies
  • See full conversation (reply thread)
  • Tiny url integration
  • Choose your favorites

Blu Says

There have been a lot of attempts at a great Twitter desktop client, but most have have resulted in glorified readers or overly complex applications—not a great experience.

Meet blu. Now you can experience Twitter in a whole new way.

If you have Windows Vista or Win7, just install all your updates and hit ‘download now’.
