AlertThingy is an Adobe AIR based desktop twitter app that lets you send and receive tweets.

AlertThingy is not as sophisticated and feature rich as the 2 most popular Adobe AIR apps for twitter namely TweetDeck and Twhirl but it has its own advantages with option to add not only twitter but a host of other sites such as Tumblr, Digg, FaceBook etc.

The app also provides the option to filter updates into 3 categories namely, Interesting, Very Interesting and Less Interesting.

AlertThingy is basically for those looking at adding several different status update sites to a single Adobe AIR application.


  • Support for multiple sites such as twitter, Digg, FaceBook etc.
  • Filter your friends updates into Interesting, Very Interesting and Less Interesting
  • Simple and intuitive interface making it easy to use
  • Integrated RSS reader so that you stay in touch with your feeds while you tweet
