The official Twitter app for Windows used to be an expanded version of the mobile app. Although they recently changed the user interface, it still does not use the extra space that a computer screen offers. Other than that, there are other limitations, such as that you cannot respond directly from notifications, there is no support for multiple windows, etc. Here are some Twitter apps that not only use the desktop layout much better, but add some other useful features as well. Let’s start.
Best Twitter Apps for Windows for Twitteratis
1. Fenice for Twitter
The first app on the list is a feature-packed Twitter client for Windows. Fenice’s layout is not extraordinarily intuitive, but it displays feeds, notifications, messages on different timelines using columns and makes better use of the desktop layout. This design makes navigation quick and easy.
I recommend Fenice for the additional features like offline tweeting, interactive notifications, powerful filters to mute hashtags, users, etc.
- Ability to tweet when offline, the app automatically posts to your tween once you’re back online.
- Interactive notifications to respond without opening the application.
- Better use of desktop layout.
- Predictive hashtag suggestions.
- No need to update to check for new tweets.
- You can continue browsing from where you left off in the last session.
- High-level design customization options.
- Not the cleanest user interface.
- It costs around $ 2.29.

Tweeten is one of the best free Twitter apps for Windows. It has an interesting layout scheme that uses the Fenice-like desktop layout. With features like ability to schedule tweets, shortening links, advanced filters to mute hashtags and users, spell check, etc. natively within the app make it easy to sell. Most of these features are normally only found in paid apps.
- A layout that efficiently uses the desktop layout.
- Additional useful features like the ability to schedule tweets, link shortening, filters, spell check, etc.
- Multiple account support.
- Option to download videos and GIFs.
- Unable to edit profile and bio natively within the app. It will redirect to the official Twitter website.
- You can see the followers and the next number, but you can’t see the list of people they follow.
- there is no option to disable autoplay within the app.

Tweetium has hands down the best layout scheme for Twitter. Both of the previous apps simply changed the layout to offer multiple timelines at once. But Tweetium offers a different layout showing tweets horizontally. This shows each image in full resolution, so you don’t need to open every tweet to get a clear view.
- Better design compared to any other Twitter app.
- Trial version of full operation for 7 days before paying the premium.
- Multiple windows functionality.
- No additional features like Fenice, although it is a paid application.

Tweetz is THE app if you want to be active on Twitter at all times. Although it lacks some features, it can be a useful secondary app. Tweetz is just a small window that remains at the top of the screen regardless of what application you are using. It shows you news, notifications, direct messages, likes, which is more than enough for a secondary application. Think of it as a ticker for Twitter.
- Ability to change font size and dark mode. As it stays on top of every app, this will come in handy.
- You can assign any Twitter app to it so that when you click on any tweet or profile, it opens that app for better viewing.
- It does not support GIF, Emojis, etc.
- It has few issues with trackpad gestures, lagging a lot while scrolling faster.

TweetDeck’s design is similar to Fenice and Tweeten. It was a standalone app when it started, but was later acquired by Twitter. It shows you multiple timelines for feed, notifications, browsing, messages, etc. and it is one of the Most used Twitter clients in Windows and Mac.
- Quick updates for new features.
- It only has a web version, but there is a third-party app called TweetDeckr which allows you to use TweetDeck by installing an application.

Raven makes a few small changes to the official Twitter app. For example, you get some better things like quick actions, posting a tweet, etc. Tweeting with the official Twitter app locks the entire app, but Raven creates a way of posting the tweet and browsing simultaneously. It also has a better way to save drafts.
Apart from that, it has some additional features like auto unfollow unfollowers, multi-window support, in-app browser, etc.
- Non-stop way to tweet.
- Quick actions and activities.
- One-click easy access drafts while tweeting.
- You are stuck with the default website layout and there is no way to change it.
