Twitter has hit something of a boom recently. From a small tech startup in San Francisco a mere seven years ago, it has blossomed to one of the largest social networks globally and the tenth most visited site on the Net. The influence of Twitter can be seen everywhere — from TV shows with hashtags in the corner to big companies promoting their brands and products with @names and hashtags — and the words “retweet” and “follower” have entered the prestigious Oxford English Dictionary as proper English words.

In this roundup, I take a look at eight of the best and weigh up the pros and cons of each one. If you’re unsure about which Twitter client to use, or simply fancy switching to another one, then read on for my recommendations.
We’ve taken a look at various RSS reader solutions in the past, but quite a bit has changed over the past year or two. Most of the apps that we are showing you here are pretty new to the market (and some are not even yet out of beta!)
The RSS reader market has been getting bigger, and Google Reader has established its position as the de facto standard for syncing and managing feeds. But are you tired of using Google Reader’s web interface?
Today we’ll be featuring some of our favorite picks for the best RSS desktop apps that work with Google Reader.
Wouldn’t it be good to organise all your social networks in one window that sits right on your desktop. Socialite combines the power of Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Digg, Google Reader and RSS feeds in one convenient location.
Socialite organises your social networks together so you can easily manage all your services. It also allows you to use most of the functionality of the websites within the application (e.g. Twitter’s new ‘Lists’ feature).
With all the different social networking tools floating around the Internet, a tool to keep them all in one central location would be really useful, right? That’s where Socialite steps in, helping you to manage Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Digg and RSS all from one application. It has improved enormously in recent months, and is turning into a very well-polished app.
