Twitter Client Applications

The biggest problem with the standard Twitter web application is that you
have to keep an eagle eye on your replies and Direct Messages as you only
see the main Tweetstream on the screen. It is also limited in that it only
displays about the last 20 tweets, so if you want to see older ones, you have
to keep going back pages. So what to do?

Easy, download Tweetdeck from The first thing
you will probably notice is that you will need to change the settings as the
default is white text on a black screen. Makes it hard to read I’ve found, but
each to their own.

Tweetdeck is brilliant in that it displays the Tweetstream, your replies and your
direct messages all on the one screen. The message columns allow for 500
tweets as a default, so scrolling down allows you to go back a fair way or
search for tweets you may want to refer back to.

The screen has a continuous right hand scroll, so you can set up different
groups and their tweets will appear in that column. You might have a group
called best friends and another for gardeners for instance. That way you
don’t miss important tweets from people who are more important to you than
others. At the time of writing, Tweetdeck is probably the most widely used
application for Twitter and I would highly recommend it to you.
