Twitter has grown to become a powerful community that allows you to keep track of updates on your favorite blogs and sites. However, having to open up the browser window and a new tab every time you want to update or read your Tweets is unnecessary and time consuming.

With this app you can eliminate all the steps of having to load the Twitter site and enter your login credentials every time you want to visit your account or send someone a message.

Avoid the Extra Clicks with Twittastic

Twittastic (compatible with Windows platforms Win98 and up) drastically increases the improvement of your Twitter experience by allowing you to update your personal profile, follow your friends or sites, and send messages all from the comfort of your desktop.

Twittastic features a clear-cut and simple GUI (graphical user interface) and arrives at your desktop with a few interesting tools. For example, you can take a screenshot and instantly share it on Twitter by uploading the file to Twitpic (through Twittastic) and pasting the corresponding link in the text field. This same process can be applied to photos, webcam shots, and any other sort of file on your PC.

Another nifty feature that comes with Twittastic is the ability to flip your text completely upside-down. This feature isn’t absolutely useful, but it can be a bit interesting for your followers at times.

You can also insert small graphics into your tweets as well.

The End of our Fan(Twit)tastic Journey

Twittastic lets you control your Twitter account directly from your desktop through the use of various features allowing you to save time and blend creativity with your Tweets as well. Not only are you able to send messages and update your account on your desktop, but you’re also able to share unlimited amounts of files with other users.

A quick drawback I came across was that Twittastic only supports one account; hopefully in the future the developers of this app will allow the use of multiple accounts at once.

Do you use Twittastic?  If so, what do you like / dislike about it?

    I'm working on something, but ran into problems with the Twitter API usage limits.

    NOT COOL Twitter!!!

    what i don't understand is why there is such a lack of PORTABLE twitter clients...

    so far i have only found one: Pwytter_Portable. it's tricky to find (i think i got it from esnips.com) and it's still a test release - but well worth hunting down.

    i run it from my USB (thumb) drive (launched via PStart). Simple to configure - no need to login after initial set up - i can set the number of tweets displayed & the auto-refresh rate - display friends / public / @replies / DMs - and i can quickly change to another twitter account :)

    Apparently it is an abandoned project...why oh why?

    I've used Tweetdeck till now for my twittering. I'll have to give this a go as Tweetdeck hasn't been that stable for me recently (most likely because my work pc needs a rebuild real bad heh).

      Hey Dee,

      Try this client out...maybe it'll work better for you and give you the stability Tweetdeck seems to lack of.

      Thanks for visiting MUO!

    Apart from the upside-down text, this app seems very similar to Twhirl or Tweetdeck. Rather than another 'me too' client, I'd love someone to do something really innovative and take Twitter clients to the next level.

      Rob,

      It's true, I'm still waiting for a Twitter client that will blow all of our minds! I have tabs on that, it'll come out..it's just a matter of waiting now.
