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.

The Mac certainly isn’t left out here and you’ll be glad to know that there’s plenty of choice when it comes to Twitter clients. 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.

I’d like to take a moment to say a big thank you to this week’s sponsor, Twitterrific. I absolutely love every application that the Iconfactory produce, and this is no exception. It’s thoughtfully designed, beautiful to look at, and a pleasure to use.

If you’re growing tired with sparse updates to the official Twitter client (or the gradual integration of ads), look no further than Twitterrific. It’s a great alternative to the official Twitter client, and performs far better in many areas.

It supports multiple accounts, multiple windows, translation, a unified timeline, themes, and full keyboard control throughout. The latest release, version 4, was a huge update which brought a range of new functionality and a clean, minimal design.

You can buy Twitterrific on the Mac App Store, download the free version, or check out our in-depth review. I’m a huge fan, and really can’t recommend this app highly enough. Go try it out!

Today’s interview is with Gedeon Maheux, Principal / Designer at the Iconfactory team. World-renowned for their design work, the Iconfactory offer thousands of free icons, Mac and iOS software, royalty-free stock icons, and much more.

We’ll be talking about the history of the Iconfactory, why the company started developing software, how Gedeon believes this has changed their identity, the Twitter client ecosystem, and hearing about a brand new application called “Flare”!

I hope you enjoy the interview!

As Mac users, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to Twitter clients. With so many choices, and so many good choices, I’ve had to try almost all of them and I still haven’t settled on just one!

Twitterrific has always been a main contender in the native-app arena, with a slick interface, lots of features and constant development. With a multitude of free options coming available recently (notably Twitter for Mac), Twitterrific has had to step up their game with recent 4.0 release, and they haven’t disappointed.
