If you have not yet joined the latest thing in micro blogging today, then you are missing out. Chances are, you have heard of Twitter and how many people have been wanting to set up their own Twitter account. Being more than just a fad, owning a Twitter account is something that can be really great for a lot of people – not just the ones that are in business.
Having a Twitter account means having a great way to blog even the smallest of ideas – right at the minute. As long as you have a wifi-enabled device and a wireless connection access, you can inform all your contacts about your whereabouts. This is useful if you are planning a party and you need to move the venue.
As soon as you send a Tweet regarding the matter, all your friends would be alerted about it. Second, concerned parents now have a great way to be informed about their children’s whereabouts if they have a Twitter account. All they have to do is to open it and check out your Tweets. In an instant, they would know if you are hanging out at the local pizza joint or are stuck in traffic on your drive back home.
And of course, having a Twitter account also means being in the know about the whereabouts and businesses of the people you care about. You can be well informed about them as they are well informed about you, thanks to the wonder that is the Twitter account!
A Twitter client is essentially a stand-alone application that you can install on your desktop or mobile phone. By using a local client, Twitting updates, replying to Twits, and following other Twitters will be easier.
There are literally hundreds of Twitter clients available today. Most, if not all, of them are open source applications and come as free downloads. The flexibility of Twitter clients make them extremely useful for users.
Twitter clients for desktop environments can be downloaded from the Twitter site. You can choose freely which one will be most suitable for your computer. You need to be a little picky though because some Twitter clients have specific system requirements.
Your best bet would be to choose an application that does not need additional software to work on your computer. If you’re using Windows, then it is best to download a Twitter client for Windows OS. For Mac users, just choose clients that are compatible with Mac environment.
It is very practical to use a Twitter client. For one thing, these clients are not resource hungry. So they will not eat-up much disk space or strain the memory of your computer.
Most importantly, you can skip going to the main website of Twitter to log-in to your account. Whenever you want to make an update to your Twitter, just open the client and start Twitting. It will save a few minutes of your time and you can write more Twitter updates or closely follow your friends or other Twitters’ updates.
