Tweet Deck software review standalone Twitter client04/16/2010
Most likely you have heard of Twitter, but may not be sure what it is. The technical description is a micro-blogging platform. Each micro-blog limits you to 140 characters. I prefer to think of this as a modern wire service, or a public Instant Messaging (IM) platform. One of the drawbacks I feel is the ability to constantly monitor and respond quickly to Tweets. This is espeically important when you are running a business oriented Twitter account.
So recently I decided to install Tweet Deck, it was originally launched in mid 2008 so by today's standards it is older software. However after using it for a week I highly recommend trying it out if you are involved with Twitter. Many of our clients at Dirigo are tweeting multiple times on a daily basis so it has been great to be able to observe and participate in their social media campaigns.
My official opinion, Tweet Deck is an oldie but a goodie, and worth trying out.
A nice UI usage for this app will be the iPad, currently you can download and read more about Tweet Deck on their website.
