OK, one more Twitter post before I get back to my regularly-scheduled life.
Here are two Adobe AIR applications that evolve the Twitter experience, add functionality, and basically are just plain cool.
Tweetr is a Twitter client for Mac and PC that encapsulates your Twitter feed and allows you to send files up to 10 MB to your friends. It also integrates with your webcam to send pictures.
TweetDeck allows you to organize your Twitter feeds into categories, and filter tweets by source, username, time, or text. It makes things much more manageable. It’s like instead of everyone talking at the same time, you can tune in to a specific channel. You can also customize the look of TweetDeck. When I started using it, I immediately noticed cool tweets that I had missed before in the great avalanche of basic Twitter. Now all I need is a separate monitor for all that data. And a separate brain.
