Long Zheng, author of the popular blog iStartedSomething.com, has posted a teaser screenshot of an upcoming Twitter client application called MetroTwit. Initially posted alongside the text “looking for super-talented Silverlight developer” the post hints that this will be a Silverlight Twitter client inspired by the Windows Phone 7 Series Metro UI. Now the post has been updated to read “general feedback welcome,” so it looks like Zheng has found a developer.
From the screenshot/mockup, it looks like the Twitter app includes the same font styles as the Metro UI as well as similar-looking buttons that show an icon in a circle. Another neat feature: links appear in blue but @usernames appear in green and hashtags are red.
No word on a launch date for this app but the feedback in the comments section is definitely positive.
