The name my sound something like an ancient Roman province, but Tweetium is one of the very best Twitter clients available on the Windows 8.1 platform right now. Feature rich, and opulently designed.

No surprises then, that it has become one of the top such apps on the Windows Store.

Even with the official Twitter app now available, this one comes with enough features to justify a purchase. These include a beautiful landscape flow layout, navigation bar pins, conversation view, tracks, support for Snap View, direct messages, image uploads and media embedding.

The official description:

“Tweetium is the premium Windows 8 Twitter client you’ve been waiting for. It’s slick. It’s fast. It’s been designed with ample feedback from serious Twitter users, with the goal of helping you get the most out of Twitter on Windows desktops, laptops, and tablets.”

Buying the app for $2.99 nets you the ability to use it with one Twitter account at a time.

But starting with this newest flavor (version 1.5), power users can also purchase Tweetium Pro from within the app that brings support for up to 5 accounts. This version also comes with new features like new pinned tab options, improved tracking of the last read marker, plus new keyboard shortcuts.

This premium app plays nicely with all versions of Windows 8.1 (x86, x64 and ARM) and the touch optimized interface is perfect for tablet usage.
