  1. Twhirl has all the features of tweetDeck but columons. No facebook support. Check out Yoono for firefox

    Been using Yoono for firefox and I like it, TweeDeck has features that YO does n’t as the ability to shorten URL’s. TD also has colum.

  3. So far, there is no one application that works standalone for twitter. How you use twitter should be discussed to determine the right app.

    Tweetdeck’s #1 feature for me is auto-complete. When following 1000+, you cannot possibly remember all of their twitter “handles.” And, even more so if you’ve developed relationships with those folks by real name (hopefully you have). Auto-complete, search and the ability to categorize contacts are a clear win over twhirl. I augment tweetdeck with Hootsuite.

    Hootsuite is currently the best tool for managing multiple profiles AND for multiple users to manage a twitter account without dolling out login information. We use Hootsuite, for example, at Social Media Club meetings. This way, multiple users can log-in and tweet an event. It also allows me to help monitor client accounts so that we can discuss the feed by phone with the same view.

    Additional tools in the mix:
    text – there are people I follow that go straight to my phone. I also receive a copy of all direct messages in text and treat directs as another important “inbox”
    twitterberry – for mobile posting and checking @replies from blackberry.
    igoggle gadget – for many clients I set them up with an igoogle rudimentary dashboard- as a listening and sharing tool NOT for analytics. I include the twitter gadget and ping.fm gadget to post to twitter and other sites.
