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?
