Why I use Seesmic Web for my Twitter app

August 17, 2009

I’ve used a number of applications to play on Twitter.

Currently I’m using Seesmic on the web. Here’s why:

I like being able to keep Twitter open on a tab. I can do that with the original Twitter, but Seesmic lets me have multiple threads open, and Twitter doesn’t.

Tweet Deck lets me keep several threads open but I don’t like leaving it open while I’m online because it seems to slow down my computer. That means I have to open and close it every time I want to check what’s happening. (I’m avoiding Seesmic Destop because I anticipate the same problem.)

I also prefer the light background of Seesmic over the dark background in TweetDeck.

But here’s the current deal-maker –

In Seesmic I can see the image just by resting my mouse on the link! That doesn’t appear to be true in the others; I have to click on the link and a new page opens. I like the Seesmic preview of the image, which saves me time.

What do you use as a Twitter app, and why?

    Joan, you should also try Brizzly. It does the same thing, but you don’t have to hover just to see the images, they’re already there. And it’s really cute. http://brizzly.com/

    Hi Joan

    …and you should also try twitscoop.com

    We’re like seesmic web and brizzly, but with our unique real-time tag cloud which will give you the pulse of the twittersphere.

    We also have the pic previews (we’ve had them for a long time), plus bitly stats, stock charts, multiple search tabs…

    🙂

    Thanks for the suggestions – I’ll give them a try.
