Welcome to SurfaceTwitter, a multi-touch Twitter client for the Microsoft Surface!

I wrote SurfaceTwitter to demonstrate the capabilities of the WPF based project type from the Microsoft Surface SDK 1.0 Service Pack 1. It is tested to run on Microsoft Surface Service Pack 1.

The capabilities of SurfaceTwitter are:

  • Show the 25 most recent Tweets in a “ScatterView” control, making each Tweet a movable and resizable object on the Surface.
  • Automatically detect the presence of a TwitPic picture linked in a Tweet and display the picture’s thumbnail attached to the tweet it belongs to.
  • Mark Mentions (of the person currently logged in) by coloring the Tweet window blue.
  • Send Tweets using the Surface on-screen keyboard.
