Over the last several months I have caught the Twitter bug. More generally, I have increased my usage of many different social networking sites like Flickr, Facebook, LinkedIn, TripIt, Lumberjocks and FriendFeed. Each of these sites provides me opportunities to meet and interact with different groups of people. Some of my friends span all these networks and some don’t.
One thing that distinguishes Twitter from many of these other Social Networking sites, is that Twitter has a very rich set of desktop clients available. For me this makes all the difference in the world and is what most dramatically impacted my Twitter usage. I have used a number of different clients, including Witty and Twhirl, but for me, TweetDeck is the one to beat for serious Twitterers.
I am not the only one who thinks so, Dave Rohrer loves TweetDeck. As does Michelle Greer and Melissa Chang who all had great reviews of TweetDeck.
