Twitter is a great service to help boost traffic to your web design, but it would be nothing without the other sites, tools, and apps that help you get the most out of it. Here i highlight 25 of my favorite Twitter add-ons.
Dont forget to hit the Tweet this button just to the left of this post and get a link back to your twitter page.
TweetDeck – Probably the most popular one. TweetDeck enables users to split their main feed (All Tweets) into topic or group specific columns allowing a broader overview of tweets. To do this All Tweets are saved to a local database.
Twitterlicious – Twitterlicious is a Windows application that makes using Twitter more fun. It handles all the hard work, leaving you to read and write tweets with the minimum fuss. Best of all, Twitterlicious is free!
Snitter – A Twitter client for Mac and Window. Snitter is Snook’s Twitter: an Adobe AIR-powered application for twittering. Keeping up with your friends has never been so fun!
Twhirl – Twhirl is a desktop twitter client, based on the Adobe AIR platform. There are a lot more things twhirl can do to improve your twitter experience, and it offers various configuration options to adapt to your personal needs.
Tweetr – For Mac and PC. Send files to your friends, but just dragging any file on to Tweetr. Tweetr will automatically upload your file and when it is done will provide a short url to send to your friends.
Web Applications (Firefox)
