I first was really exposed to Twitter at SXSW earlier this year. It seemed to be everywhere -big flat panels in the halls streamed what everyone was doing. In the evening it was being used to let everyone know which company sponsored event was closing and where to head to next. Not being a great “txtr” I could see my bill going through the roof so I steered clear.
After we had set up our Director blogs at Optiem, Clyde wanted to have Twitter on his site and I again started thinking if I should be into this or not. Same barrier – I’m just not a great user of my phone.
Snitter is a desktop application powered by Adobe-AIR for using Twitter. After setting up my page, I can post from my laptop (where I spend too much time, sorry hon) and follow other peoples posts without having to keep going to the page or running up a big bill.
Few things I like about Snitter is the different options it offers such as:
- archive of my posts
- show my friends or followers
- character count
- send directs
It also auto-updates so I can have it sitting there (love the transparency level) and I can following along. Now I know there are other methods I could’ve used such as IM but this just seemed to fit the way I work currently.
If you haven’t tried Twitter why not download Snitter, sign-up and follow me (or anyone else).
