X (Twitter) for Windows 11/10 (2024)

X (Twitter) for Windows 11/10 is the newest version of thelocal Twitter client that can be experienced on any modern Windows 10/11 PC. Built from the ground up to take full advantage of the Modern UI application framework, this application allows all Windows 10 and 11 users to access this large micro-blogging social network platform the way they want to, either via a large full-screen interface, windowed app or snapped app, on all manner devices such as home PCs, laptops, mobile devices, and even futuristic HoloLens.

Twitter is now X. The iconic bird logo is officially replaced with 'X'.

Originally founded in 2006, X (Twitter) managed quickly to establish itself as one of the leading microblogging and social networking services in the world, attracting today more than 320 million users each month and driving a web ranking of the top 50 most visited websites in the world. The rapid increase of its popularity and its influence on modern society has led to it being described as “the SMS of the Internet”.

The official Windows 10 application for Twitter enabled anyone with a free account to easily follow micro-text updates posted by its large userbase, send messages, reply to tweets, and embed in their messages emojis, images, and videos. The service can be used not only for interaction with individuals but also for following news sources that cover entertainment, politics, sports, and a wide variety of everyday interests. The app presents the content in a form of a timeline that lists all of the accounts that a user follows, but also enables easy discovery, management of notifications, and tools for private messaging and configuring user Profile.

The user interface of the app is a 100% match for the experience that can be found in a web browser, but with an added convenience of being available from inside a standalone app that can be started without the need of managing a web browser. The app is translated into more than 20 international languages. Because of its extremely small size (of under 200 KB), this app can be easily installed on any PC in mere seconds. Just visit its official page on Windows Store while being logged with your Microsoft account and click on the ”Get” button.

As for disadvantages, users should be aware that this app only supports the features that are officially supported by the main Twitter website. So things like handling of multiple accounts, advanced searching, social network analytics, automated reports for trending topics and market research, and advanced scheduling of large Twitter messaging campaigns are not present and can be found only in other Twitter clients (that can require a premium license or a paid subscription). X (Twitter) for Windows 11 and 10 is 100% FREE and does not offer any in-app purchases.
