PeopleBrowsr – The All-In-One twitter client

PeopleBrowsr can easily be called one of the most feature packed twitter web clients out there which can easily compete with some of the best desktop applications as well!

Speaking of desktop twitter clients, PeopleBrowsr has a desktop version too (some companies never really stop amazing you!).

To start with, there are three modes – Lite, Advanced and Business. Considering all the features in this app, it’s good to have such modes to keep things easy. I recommend you start using the Lite mode first and then move on to Advanced or Business.

Multiple twitter accounts are supported and you can add a host of other social networks such as FriendFeed, Digg, FaceBook etc. To filter out your following list you can create Groups as well.

Now I can go on and on and on about all the features PeopleBrowsr has (and by the time I think I’ve covered all the features, the guys would just come up with a new one!). So, why don’t you just get your ass over to PeopleBrowsr and check it out yourself.


  • Choose between Lite, Advanced and Business mode
  • Supports multiple twitter accounts
  • Supports a host of other networking sites such as FaceBook, FriendFeed, Digg etc
  • Create groups and sort your friends easily
  • Search and track keywords on twitter
  • Autocomplete whenever you @reply or DM
  • Supports themes
  • Auto-refreshes timeline
  • Adobe AIR desktop application available

Mixero – Every twitter users dream!

To be frank, I do not know where to start. I do not know if I would be able to explain all the features of this fantabulous twitter application! The more I use it, the more I like it. Yeah go on, you can say I’m in awe of this twitter app!

Mixero is clearly one of the best ever apps built for twitter. This isn’t just another twitter application, Mixero is what you get when you understand what a twitter user wants, when you analyze the requirements of everyday twitter users like you and me. It is this insight by the developers of Mixero that has helped them build this beauty!

1. Groups

To start with, Mixero supports groups. With every twitter user in the race to follow every other twitterer, groups come in handy to separate the ones that really matter to you.

2. Channels

Channels are nothing but saved searches. Create a channel with your desired keywords and you are good to track tweets you are interested in.

3. Active List

Once you become a pro at using Mixero, you would find that you have a lot of groups and channels to follow. Active List’s come into the picture here. Depending on your mood, you can have a set of groups, users and channels in the active list all at the same time. After that, you would only be seeing updates from twitterers in your Active List, helping you concentrate on what you are most interested in at that moment.

4. Context

As you dive further into Mixero, you would realize that having an Active List isn’t enough! You would want more than one Active List and this is where Contexts come into the picture. Create new Contexts with your set of Active Lists to go into each one of them. This way, you can quickly change between your various Active Lists.

5. Filters

You can filter any user or group’s timeline with keywords of your choice. So, one fine day you decide you would only talk to those twitterers who tweet about your favourite football club, just enter the clubs name in your filter and start your conversation with the right fellas!

6. URLs + Autocompletion + Smart Preview + UI

Mixero provides an option to shorten URLs as you type them into the update field. You can set your preferred URL shortening service in the settings page. You can also see the original URL by hovering your mouse over a short URL.

You must have come across some twitter applications with autocomplete before. But Mixero has one of the most unobtrusive autocomplete window! It’s so convenient to use as well as not use that option!

Easily preview pictures from TwitPic and Flickr. Preview frames from Youtube videos as well.

The Mixero panels are resizeable and you can create any number of panels of any size displaying any channel, group, contact or active list.

7. A Miracle

Stop worrying about losing all the Groups, Active Lists, Contexts, Channels etc. Everything can be synchronized, which means you’ll never have to create those groups all over again in case you change your PC or use the application at two different locations (work + home).

8. Coming Soon

Knowing that Mixero would soon be coming out with an iPhone application that supports almost all the features of the desktop application, I’m jealous of all you iPhone owners (how I wish I had an iPhone!)

As a parting shot I would say this

If there is an app you would use and say WOW, it’s Mixero.


  • Create groups and never miss out on your favourite twitterers
  • Channels to help you track keywords on twitter
  • Active Lists to view only selected groups,channels or contact
  • Context helps you view the desired Active List
  • Filters help you filter your timeline for words specified by you
  • Shorten URL and view Long URLs

  • Create as many panels and of any size you wish
