TweetDeck and Twitter

A new user of Twitter might be surprised to learn that a large number of people use the Twitter service, but rarely visit the Twitter site. This is one of the things that makes Twitter special. It has an api that developers can use to produce a wide variety of tools to make the Twitter experience more enjoyable and efficient.

One of the best and most popular of these tools is TweetDeck. It is a free application that greatly enhances the Twitter experience. It's especially helpful if you have more than one Twitter account or also use other social networks like Google Buzz, Facebook or MySpace.

It makes it easy to retweet or choose which account you want to post to. You can also schedule posts to give yourself some time off without neglecting your followers.

You can set up multiple columns for different accounts, lists, direct messages, mentions, etc. It's an excellent way to keep track of your social circle without visiting multiple sites and continually logging in to different accounts.

It doesn't do everything, but it's hard to beat for a free tool and new features keep being added. I do use paid tools for more specialized features, but I still find myself coming back to TweetDeck for general Twitter use.

I recommend that you give TweetDeck a try. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
