I’ve been silent on this blog for a few weeks now. A look through my abandoned draft posts says it all, I live in the Internet NOW and Twitter is at the heart of it. I just discovered TweetDeck, and it’s nursing my Twitter addiction.
TweetDeck has managed to do something other Twitter apps have not — integrate all the features of Twitter in one dashboard. TweetDeck’s simple design makes it easy to see tweets, replies, favourites and DMs in columns. You can also create groups and easily select followers to add to those groups. All my followers from libraryland are joined together in my “Librarian Group”. Same thing for my Tumblr followers.
TwitterSearch and Twitscoop are one-click away. You can also login to Facebook for status updates and use Twitpic to share photos. TweetDeck supports URL-shortening services such as TinyURL, tri.im, and Twurl.
That’s all for now. Heading back to TweetDeck for my Twitter-fix ……

I blogged recently about my favourite microblogging service, Twitter. I’m spending less time on Facebook and more time on Twitter these days. A recent article in the Toronto Star, “Forget Facebook, Everyone’s a-Twitter“, confirms I’m not alone.
Just as Twitter’s popularity increases, so do the number of 3rd party applications and clients that work with it.
Here are few more Twitter tools since my last round-up:
A desktop client for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux which runs on Adobe AIR. Allows you to post tweets, view your timeline and public timeline from your desktop. Spaz has a slick user-interface.
I mentioned twhirl in my last round-up. Like Spaz, twhirl allows you to post tweets and view Twitter timelines from the desktop using Adobe AIR. The interface is more Twitter-esque. It has the added benefit of allowing you to connect to multiple Twitter accounts, shorten-long urls and cross-post to Pownce and Jaiku.
