Twhirl: An Upgrade For Twitter

TwhirlWhile attending the D.C. Capital Cabal networking event the other night, I got into a conversation with Jimmy Gardner about various Twitter applications for the P.C. Jimmy suggested using Snitter since it gives audio alerts each time you receive an @reply on Twitter. Yesterday, while browsing through my RSS feeds I stumbled upon another Twitter application called Twhirl. This application is my first experience with Adobe AIR and I have to admit that it was a pretty smooth experience.

Twhirl is the best Twitter application I’ve used so far. Twhirl is also really useful for the more than 30 percent of Twitter users with multiple accounts. For those highly active users, Twhirl provides users with the ability to login to multiple accounts at once. I also enjoy the @reply audio alerts since I can’t possibly read through all of the tweets that move across my screen on a daily basis.

The use of Twhirl further emphasizes my new found Twitter addiction but hey, I might as well embrace it rather than fight my desire. Twitter has become my own personal chatroom and I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying it. I am also seeing more people join the conversation which means Twitter is growing at least within the group of Twitterers that I’m listening to. If you want a simply to use and well designed Twitter application, check out Twhirl.
