Are you a Twitter-a-Holic?

Is Twitter really blogging? Somehow I doubt it but people seem to be having fun with it anyway. Love it or hate it, Twitter has it’s die-hard fans and seems to be here to stay. 

So if you are a Twitter-a-Holic then you will want to grab this software download. It’s called Twitteroo and it allows you to:

  • Update your Twitter status from your Desktop
  • URL shortening via rurl.org
  • Twitter notifications
  • View your Friends timeline or the Public timeline
  • Clickable links from status messages
  • Refreshes automatically or manually
  • Set refresh time and notification transparency
  • Support for international characters in status messages
  • Browse to Twitter user page or personal websites
  • Customize Twitteroo font size
  • Set transparency for main Twitteroo window and notifications
  • Optional sound notification when new tweets arrive
  • Bite-sized cookies made from real Twitter

    There’s also an Apple version called Twidget that you can download as well.

      That’s a good point Mary … um … … ah … hold on … I’m still thinking. Ya got me there. :-)

      All kidding aside it seems to meet 3 needs:

      1. Some people use it like a public chat line. With the open web and social networking all the rage, privacy is a thing of the past;
      2. Some use it as a micro link-blog. It’s great for lazy a-listers who don’t want to write much or dilute their blog pagerank;
      3. Blogpreneurs use it as a networking tool.

      To each their own.
