McTwit is a free, open source desktop client for Twitter.com, a popular
social networking site.  The program is designed for productivity by
keyboard users.  Additionally, if the JAWS, System Access, or Window-Eyes
screen reader is active, some information is conveyed efficiently through
direct speech messages.  Such messages are also displayed on the status
line for visual users.

McTwit works on almost any version of Windows.  Its use of standard
controls tends to maximize accessibility.  Programmed in a cross-platform
language, the source code is also relatively easy for interested
developers to port to other operating systems.  A command-line version of
McTwit is included in the distribution, as well as the more powerful GUI

McTwit's flexible, direct access to Twitter features makes it convenient
to explore and communicate interactively.  You can select a user either by
pointing to a list item or entering a screen name.  Get a list of
someone's tweets, followers, or leaders with a single keystroke.  Go to a
related URL, subscribe to tweets, post a public reply, or send a private
