This desktop client gives you access to only the DMs of your Twitter accounts i.e., a standalone messenger for your Twitter. You can use it in landscape as well as portrait orientations and send GIFs, images, stickers, etc. whatever Twitter supports. Also, it also packs a nifty feature to post a tweet from the system tray. So, Let’s check it out in detail.

The website automatically detects your operating system and starts downloading the respective client setup file. Once you have the setup file, simply run that to install Twizzle on your PC.
After installation, you can run the client and login with your Twitter account to access the DMs. It shows almost the same DM layout as of Twitter websites with a few additional options. Those additional options are:
