Nice Twitter app for Vista, looks like AIM

Very nice Twitter app called blu for Vista/Win7. Looks great.

I haven't perused the DC profiles to see who's Twittering. If you are, I'm zaine_ridling on there.

Looks very nice, thanks for sharing. I'm currently using Spaz (Spaz loves me :-*), but ready try out others as well. 

While trying to download blu the home page says: "There is a problem. It appears you do not have the correct software to run this download." The correct software being .NET Framework 3.5 which I do have.  :down:

BTW, where did this Adobe Air come from all of a sudden? A month ago I hadn't even heard about it, now it looks like every other program I'm downloading requires it. It's becoming just as annoying as .NET Framework.
Regards, Anne

Wow Anne..I never knew about "Spaz" and its incredible.  I have tried a few Twitter clients, Spaz is the best so far.  Blu is very simplistic feature-wise, too much unneeded eye candy, but runs solid and works well.

Three very similar looking Twitter clients. I chose the one that looked coolest. 8)

TweetDeck for Linux is also pretty cool, although that's a lot of information on the screen, which begins to defeat the purpose of Twitter in a way. Also comes in other versions.

Nice! Seems the world is not short of Twitter clients. And there's even a widget for Opera browser.
