Twitter Clients


Daily, I like to step back and look at the wisdom of the folks that I follow here on Twitter.  This morning, I was curious to know if my Twitter habits could be improved.

My Twitter client of choice, at present, is Hootsuite for desktop and Android and Twittelator for iPad.   I guess the number one reason is that runs in a browser so it doesn’t matter what I’m doing, it’s open in a tab.  In fact, it’s one of the default tabs on all my browsers.  

Twittelator is the go-to on my iPad.  It’s been a long-time friend there.

Just to confirm that there’s not something better, I took a look at what the folks I follow are using to get their message out.  Fortunately, Hootsuite makes it so easy since it lets you know what tool others are using.  

Looking around, I find my timeline filled with messages posted from the following:

  • Buffer
  • Twitter Ads
  • Hootsuite
  • Twuffer
  • Tweetbutton
  • Flipboard
  • Tweetdeck
  • Twitter for iPhone
  • iOS
  • Paper.li
  • Twitter for Windows
  • Twitter for iPad
  • Triberr
  • Twitter for Android
  • Sharedby
  • Dropbox
  • SocialFlow
  • Foursquare
  • Web
  • Twitter for Mac
  • Twitter for iOS
  • Tweetbot
  • Bitly
  • Twitter for Blackberry
  • Twitter for Windows Phone
  • Instagram
  • IFTTT
  • WordPress.com
  • and then I got tired of looking…

Clearly, there is no consensus as to what folks are using.  Some share their thoughts and learnings from a Twitter client and others will just click on a link to share when they get to a resource.

The bottom line is that I see no compelling reason to change any of my habits.  The process did give me a renewed appreciation for those who share their learnings and their thoughts on a regular basis.  Together, we all become that much more informed and, potentially, that much smarter.

What more could you ask for?  It may be a confusing start for those just getting started but the results are worth it.
