My favorite iPhone Twitter client is now my favorite Mac Twitter client — free of charge with ads (from Fusion), or $15 for a full license. Tweetie for Mac is not, of course, a “port” of Tweetie for iPhone, but it is infused with a certain iPhone-esque sensibility. There is much to like about Tweetie for Mac, but what I like best is that it is visually quiet. Most of the new desktop Twitter clients I’ve checked out try to show more at once. Twitter by its nature is inherently distracting; I want a client that doesn’t exacerbate it.
