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 Windows 7, you may want to check out blu. Truly stylish!
Unlimited tweets: With blu you can view unlimited tweets. Just keep scrolling and more tweets will be loaded and displayed automatically. Click the update icon from the bottom menu and a new text entry field will appear.
Tweets can only be a fixed number of characters per message. 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.
And replying to a tweet couldn’t be easier: just click the reply icon and the tweet you’re replying to will flip, revealing a entry field. Direct messages and re-tweets work the same way.
See the full conversation: Here’s another great feature in blu. You get a tweet, but it’s a reply to something you said earlier and you can’t quite remember what it was you said. Usually, there isn’t a good way to see the first part of your conversation.
Tiny url integration: That’s right. We’ve added tiny url support. Simply type or paste a link into the update bubble and blu will convert it for you. No extra buttons, no extra box. Want to expand your link? Just click the ‘plus’ icon and blu will roll-back to the full url.
Choose your favorites: We know you follow a lot of people, but perhaps you follow some individuals a little more enthusiastically than others. blu hears you!

The developers of blu had also planned to launch an app called the Messenger Continuum, but discontinued it because ‘the API it is built on isn’t available. in other words, we took down cuz its too buggy!’ But if you want to watch the video of what they were working on, go here!
