The best Windows Twitter clients: from TweetDeck to tweetc

With more than 190 million users, and less than half of those using Twitter.com to post updates, the installed Twitter client market is massive. There are literally hundreds of Twitter clients spanning every desktop and mobile platform, and even a few cross-platform Web apps thrown into the mix. Even if you narrow down the search to just one platform -- Windows -- there's still a dizzying...

10+ Chrome extensions and Web apps for new users

It might only be a couple of years old and its extension interface might not be quite as powerful as Firefox's, but in terms of developers, big-name publishers, and sheer numbers, Chrome already has a very healthy ecosystem of add-ons.

TweetDeck, the AIR-based desktop and smartphone Twitter power app, has finally joined its biggest competitor, Seesmic, on the Web. The new TweetDeck app for Google's fledgling Chrome Web Store brings the best of what people loved about the desktop AIR-app to the Web, in what Iain Dodsworth, CEO of TweetDeck calls: "definitely our best version of a desktop TweetDeck so far."

Twitter Tuesday - Kiwi for Mac and Tweetdeck for Android get updates

Hey, Twitter fans! It's been a while since a truly promising Twitter app has come along on the Mac, especially with development on Tweetie 2 apparently abandoned. Well, a scrappy little app called Kiwi is about to get a big update, and it's looking like a serious contender.

TweetDeck for Android gets full landscape support, TwitPic integration and short URLs

TweetDeck for Android has just been updated to 1.0.3. This update, while not a major one, isn't all about fixing bugs either. Some important -- and previously missing -- functionality is now built in. TweetDeck for Android now has support for landscape mode for all update detail views, and gets support for TwitPic and manual URL shortening through Bit.ly. Users can now delete direct messages...

Twitter Tuesday - ex-CEO Jack Dorsey returns to Twitter

Hey, Twitter fans!

DLS Review: TweetDeck for Android seamlessly integrates Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and Google Buzz

I initially wanted to review TweetDeck for Android back in August, but ruefully I discovered that it only works with Android 2.1-and-later devices! Now, however, via the power of hacked Russian ROMs, I am using Android 2.1. Without further ado, then, TweetDeck for Android. Android apps with sensible interfaces are few and far between. Interfaces can vary so much between apps that it becomes...

Twitter Tuesday -- OAuth is here, password-based authentication is dead

Big changes for third-party apps on Twitter today: they can no longer require you to log in with your Twitter password. Twitter's mandatory switch to OAuth authentication has finally happened, which means you have more control over which apps can access your account.
