I’ve never really been on a Twitter client hunt before. Know why? It’s because TweetDeck is awesome. I can’t remember how I came across it but it’s my favourite way to keep track of what’s what on twitter.
You start of with 3 columns: All Friends, Mentions, and Direct Messages. From there, you can make groups of people you’re following to have their own column, add a twitter search column for terms or hashtags, or even link up with other social networks and watch the updates on TweetDeck.
Lately, I’ve been using it to follow the TV shows I watch. I’ve added #castle and #criminalminds columns and find some interesting people. Through the #castle hashtag, I found out that there was a book signing for Heat Wave in LA at the same time the episode was going on here in Toronto. Also, yesterday, I found out that Castle’s been extended to be a full-fledged 22 episode season. The news really travels.
I actually just added the #criminalminds column about 15 minutes ago. I’m sure I’ll find out some things I wouldn’t have known before the end of the night.
