Tweet Tray lets you compose Twitter tirades from your PC's system tray

Sometimes, you have to channel your hot takes to Twitter right away. Sure, you could open up a browser or the Twitter app and continue as normal. But if you're looking for a novel way to translate your tirades to tweets, a new project called Tweet Tray is a neat alternative.

The concept behind Tweet Tray is relatively simple: it's the "Compose Tweet" box, but living in your Windows system tray. Once you've logged in and authorized Tweet Tray with your account, you can click its icon on the bottom right of the screen at any time to send out a new tweet. In addition to text, Tweet Tray supports adding GIFs and still images as well. The app's settings menu also includes a night mode toggle for when you need to tone things down a bit.

It's an incredibly simple little tool, but that's what makes it neat. And best of all, it's fast. Obviously, if you like to keep your eyes on your Twitter feed at all times, Tweet Tray is probably redundant. But, if you're looking for a quick way to just fire a tweet or ten out into the ether, it could come in handy.

You can learn more about Tweet Tray and give it a download at Github.
