Twitter really began to take off right before we launched the Apollo alpha. At the time, it seemed that everyone (myself included), was creating an Apollo based Twitter client. I tried them all out, as well as some non-Apollo clients, but none of them really felt right, and I ended up not using them.
Yesterday, I stumbled upon Tweetr (I think I saw it from one of Scoble’s tweets), and have been using constantly since I found it. I can’t really put my finger on why I like this one so much more than all the other Twitter apps, but I think it has something to do with the simple UI, ease of use, and application focus (it just does Twitter and does it well).
Btw, Tweetr has the distinction of a couple of firsts for an Apollo application:
- First Apollo Application that made it to the front of digg
- First Apollo application that I set to automatically run when my computer starts
OK, so the second one is not that big of a distinction.
Anyways, if you use Twitter, make sure to check it out.
