tweetbot-screenshotI was sad to see Tweetdeck’s Air app discontinued. It’s been the go-to Twitter client I recommend to our clients since the app launched. Easy to use and lightweight, pretty much anybody could master it in a few minutes, and with a few minutes more they could add on some spiffy bells and whistles and rock the Twitterverse.

Alas, Twitter acquired TweetDeck and now they’ve killed it on the iPhone and Android as well as their popular desktop app. They say they’ll be working on a browser based app and may follow it with native Mac and Windows apps. They are discontinuing Facebook integration altogether as well. So what to do?

If you’re Mac user, you should take a look at the Tweetbot IOS Twitter app. If you’re PC user, read this post from PC Magazine with some good PC alternatives.Honestly I use Hootsuite and SproutSocial in the browser, but since I had to go look at alternative desktop apps for my clients I thought I’d start with my favorite Twitter app on my phoneTweetbot.

Tweetbot IOS app Features:

  • Multiple accounts within the app
  • Sync via iCloud
  • Multiple Column Views
  • Use Lists as Timelines
  • Save drafts of your tweets
  • View trends locally and worldwide
  • Create, edit and manage lists
  • Inline media preview
  • Mute users, hashtags, clients, keywords and RT’s
  • Choose Quote formats (RT, Via @username, RT w comment)
  • View profile in Favstar

The only thing that would make Tweetbot better is the scheduling I get with the Hootsuite app. On the iPhone, Tweetbot simply rocks! Now cross platform wise I’m really excited about Banjo for my personal use. More about that in a post soon!
