Twitter client that rocks!
I wrote this post a while back. The content can still be relevant but the information I've linked to may not be available.
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.
