10 Awesome Web-Based Twitter Clients

There are a great number of ways a person can tweet nowadays; whether it’s from the original website, through your iPhone or your desktop app, the competition is fierce. From that competition comes innovation, and Twitter has its own fair share of innovative clients that are available on the web.

Each client has a its own niche and reasons for why its special…

1. Brizzly

An interesting client in that it doesn’t feel pretentiously high-tech, it’s just more about enjoying your Twitter rather that drowning in statistics and management.

Pros: Mute users without unfollowing; inline image, video and map display.

Cons: Too simple for social media junkies.

2. Hootsuite

If you can appreciate the utility of an electric screw driver over its traditional cousin, you will appreciate Hootsuite.

Pros: Connects to everything; completely customizable; great for companies.

Cons: Far too complex for everyday tweeting; can feel awfully cluttered; we don’t like the interface.

Pros: Simple and straightforward without missing anything important; nice user interface.

Cons: Doesn’t have the full set of power user features.

4. Splitweet

Targeted at corporate users who need to both manage multiple accounts and track their results. What makes Splitweet great is that it will, unlike HootSuite, automatically update your stream and offers a brand name tracking feature that lets you track custom searches along side your regular stream.
