Twitter client that rocks!

Posted on by Clive Walker in Twitter

Twitter has a web interface but the immediacy of the service is kinda lost [and it's pretty inconvenient] if you have to refresh the Twitter website every few minutes. Since joining Twitter I have tried out a few Twitter desktop clients that check the Twitter service automatically and display the results. Disappointingly, none of them lasted on my system for more than a few weeks. They either consumed loads of resources or simply did not work the way I wanted. That is, until now….

DestroyTwitter has an unusual name but it's a great piece of software that works extremely well. I love it! Everything seems to be really well thought out even though the software is in beta at the moment. Some of the things I like are the theme choices that are available, the animated movement of panels [much better than the horizontal scrolling in some other Twitter clients], the TwitPic support [images open in the application], and the search and username autocomplete functions.

Great software IMHO.

    I still don’t understand what the hype is about twitter, why do people get so attached to new socialising websites?

    I have only used Twitter for a few months but I have made some useful new contacts and had some interesting online conversations with people. In one case, the other person telephoned to continue the conversation. It has also helped me keep-up with what’s going on in the web design arena where some things get mentioned on Twitter first before they hit the blogosphere. That’s why I like it.

A simple question that helps prevent automated form fillers.
