Every time I find a laptop bag I say I love, Eric rolls his eyes. “You say that now, but in 6 months you’ll be complaining about it like all the rest.” I tell him that the problem isn’t me, it’s that the perfect bag hasn’t been invented (that I can afford, at least) so until then I settle for the best I can get with one hand while I’m looking for utopia with the other.
That’s the way I am with Twitter clients right now. I tried at least 6 of them on the iPhone, (Tweetie and Twitterific are currently my favorites) and I’ve tried so many on the Mac desktop and in the browser window I’ve lost count. On the desktop, none quite fit the bill for this tweet addict who has posted over 5,500 updates in 2.5 years.
In no particular order, here’s what would make a perfect desktop Twitter client for me. Tweetie is pretty close, but I’m getting impatient at the lack of feature-improvement updates. I understand that @atebits is a one-man show and he’s moving. Doesn’t make waiting any easier.
