Tweet with Flexibility
Twitter became popular in part due to the thousands of different ways to post and view Tweets. While some people tweet on twitter directly, other people enjoy the flexibility and additional options of 3rd party Twitter clients like tweetdeck, hootsuite and Seesmic. Stay with us as we show you the features and benefits of three cool twitter clients. Then you decide which one makes the most sense to you for time saving ease, flexibility and customization
Tweetdeck is an Adobe AIR desktop Twitter application that has many great options that works with both Mac & PC. Tweetdeck works for connecting you with your contacts across Twitter and other social sites. Tweetdeck shows you everything you want to see at once, so you can stay organized and up to date. See what’s trending, get in sync, manage multiple twitter accounts easily and much more. Currently Tweetdeck is listed as the most popular 3rd party Twitter Client.
Hootsuite is a web based alternative meaning you don’t need to download or install anything. The interface is very flexible and you can create nice layouts just the way you want them. You can have multiple tabs, with each tab showing up to four columns of tweets. You can drag and drop columns and tabs, change width of columns, and set individual refresh intervals for each tab. Columns can be used for Groups, Mentions, DMs, and Searches similar to Tweetdeck and Seesmic.
The unique features of HootSuite are:
-Co-workers can tweet from the same Twitter account.
-You can track the number of clicks on the links you tweet.
-You can schedule tweets for later.
-You can feed any RSS/Atom feed to your Twitter account.
-You can use Ping.fm with HootSuite to broadcast tweets to other networks
-The Hootlet is a bookmarklet for your browser toolbar to tweet about a web page
Seesmic provides both a web based and a downloadable Adobe AIR version that works with both Mac & PC.
Seesmic Adobe Air version is a lot like TweetDeck and HootSuite combined.
The Seesmic web based version is not as powerful as the Adobe AIR version. The web based is an attractive option if you are following a limited number of people from a single account.
