Twitter: TweetDeck

My current favorite tool for using twitter at the moment: TweetDeck.

It's an Adobe Air application, so you need to have the runtime installed.

Things I like:

  • grouping of twitter feeds- this allows you to break down the steady stream of tweets into manageable chunks
  • remove read tweets
  • easily reply/direct messages
  • nice look and feel
  • easy search in twitter feeds / groups

Things I don't like:

  • approximate 50 MB memory usage
  • you need a steady hand to mark tweets as read (you have to click a small circle), no keyboard shortcut
  • no way to refetch tweets removed (at least I can't find that option)
