Are you a Spaz for Twitter

Posted on October 4, 2009. Filed under: Twitter Software | Tags: , , |

Top Twitter ToolsSpaz AIR is a desktop or mobile application for managing twitter. Spaz is also an award winning application.

“I submitted Spaz as something of an afterthought, to be honest. I had received some good feedback on it from a couple people at Adobe, but I didn’t think it was all that, so to speak. Throughout the development process I avoided looking at what other developers were doing, especially other Twitter devs, because I was sure it would send me into a tailspin of despair at the bush league-ness of my own kung fu. After all, Spaz is the first “Rich Internet Application” I’ve written. I hadn’t even written an AJAX call in any code up until Spaz.”

spaz-screenshotSpaz is an oper source project with a large number of features.

    MadTwitter Twitterrific for Windows

    Posted on October 4, 2009. Filed under: Twitter Software | Tags: , |

    Top Twitter ToolsMadTwitter is the windows version that was inspired by twitterrific.

    MadTwitter is a Windows application that lets you read “twits” written by your friends and publish your own. It’s inspired in Twitterrific, a really nice application for Mac. As I couldn’t find an equivalent one for Windows I decided to write my own.

    Using it is really easy. First, you need to register for an account at Twitter. Once you get your account, download MadTwitter and install it. When executing it for first time, it will ask for your credentials and some options.

    Once configured it will stay at the bottom of your desktop (in the systray) showing itself when you receive new “twits”. Clicking on its icon will show the main window where you can write your “twits”.”
