About six months ago I installed the very popular, open source (it’s free), Drupal content management system on my server. After an initial once over I really didn’t get it. The default installation was very generic and I didn’t immediately understand how a content management system could help me build a better website.
I thought I would write a quick little, non-techie, blog post about my experience with the desktop Twitter app known as Twhirl. I started using it on Mothers Day as an experiment. I was bored with twittering via IM and cell phone (just bored in general really) and thought I would give the Twhirl app a whirl. <–(clever)
Since then I have really come to prefer the Twhirl app. So why use a desktop Twitter app? After all, for sending and receiving tweets, IM, txt, or web is perfectly suitable. Well, I don’t have my unlimited texting plan anymore, I get tired of refreshing a web page, and dealing with finicky IM problems gets old fast. Twhirl gives me an always-on, always-refreshing (well, every 2min in my case), link to the Twitter world. I let Twhirl run continuously in the background of my desktop and laptop computers, and regardless of which computer I’m using, I automatically get my tweets. Plus, Twhirl has several nice features that make it easy to reply, send direct messages, or manage multiple Twitter accounts.
If you’ve never given a desktop Twitter app a try, I highly recommend it. And Twhirl is a good place to start.
