SocialVisor – Adobe AIR twitter app for those in a hurry

SocialVisor is a non-obtrusive Adobe AIR based Twitter app that quietly sits on your desktop without disturbing you.

Unlike desktop apps like TweetDeck, Seesmic etc. which take up the entire screen space (I’ve been thinking of getting a new LCD for my TweetDeck!), SocialVisor takes up only a small portion of your desktop. Since its built on Adobe AIR, you can use this twitter app on Windows, Linux as well as Mac.

SocialVisor makes use of Twitter oAuth for authentication. It supports all the functionalities you would want from a regular twitter app such as @replies, DM, favorites, Groups etc.

Twitter conversations are displayed as threaded chats. You can forward any tweet as an email. Share photos easily with your friends as well as comment on them. Split long tweets into multiple tweets.

Apart from Twitter, SocialVisor also supports Facebook. The ‘Groups’ functionality of SocialVisor lets you include both your Twitter as well as Facebook friends into a single group!

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

Twittm – a lean and clean twitter desktop client

Twittm is a light weight twitter desktop client powered by Adobe AIR.

The application doesn’t have many features. Actually, the only features present in twittm are the ability to @Reply, Retweet and unfollow a user!

But, what we liked about twittm is the feature which allows you to save search results and displays them in separate tabs, something similar to Yahoo! Sideline.


  • Simple Adobe AIR powered desktop twitter application
  • @Reply and Retweet facility available
  • Save search results as separate tabs


Twittm Says

Twittm is a desktop client for twitter.

Follow friends and trends, topics of your interest, and tweet like a maniac.
