TweetDeck and TwitScoop

Twitter can be a noisy bastard. I follow maybe 250 people and there’s no good way to keep up unless that is the only thing I’m doing. Hardly a productive option. Recently I’ve started to use “Tweetdeck”: as my twitter client. TweetDeck is a desktop (Adobe Air) app with all sorts of features that help manage my Twitter stream.

My favorite of TweetDeck’s features is its “TwitScoop”: integration.

One glance at the TwitScoop column running on my second monitor and I can easily spot breaking news or popular topics. Clicking any of the words in the TwitScoop cloud brings me to the TwitScoop search for that word. Very handy.
