I have received more feedback on McTwit within weeks of its introduction
than on any of my programs within a similar time period!  Apparently,
Twitter is a hot phenomenon, and this accessible client is filling a

Twitter is being used to get bulletins about public or company news with
links to web pages for more information.  People ask quick questions or
express informal opinions on Twitter that they would not do by email.
Direct, private messages may also be exchanged.

Numerous fixes and enhancements have been made since the 1.0 version of
McTwit.  Start up issues on some systems have been resolved.  McTwit now
works on 64 as well as 32-bit versions of Windows.  Optional settings may
be adjusted through a single configuration dialog.  Message times are
displayed in a friendly manner based on the local time zone.

Added features include the following.  Retrieve new messages in the
background automatically after a time period that you specify.  Search
twitter.com using the same syntax as on the web site.  Get a list of the
10 most popular Twitter topics.  Set, remove, or list favorite messages.
Check how much of your hourly resource limit is left on Twitter.  Inquire
whether a newer version of McTwit is available, and if so, upgrade to it.
