A Snippet of Twhirl, The Desktop Twitter

Twhirl is a desktop Twitter client, based on the Adobe AIR platform. It connects to multiple Twitter and Friendfeed accounts, pops up notifications on new tweets, shortens long URLs (using snurl, twurl or is.gd), cross-posts updates to Pownce and Jaiku, post images to TwitPic, searches tweets using TweetScan, filters timelines, and is localized to English, German, Italian and Spanish.

Like a blog you can join or create a community. You can network with people in your niche, local area or interests. Twhirl notifies you when someone posts that you are following, makes it easy to message people and faster to make posts (tweets).

The Twhirl interface is very economical, providing extensive options for viewing and updating statuses and messages for all your Twitter and Friendfeed accounts without overcrowding the small screen. The preferences let you customize your receipt of tweet alerts, the program font, and network pings, but not the app’s skin.

Twhirl has implemented an ‘x more comments’ feature so that it doesn’t have to display 20 comments that take up the whole screen, but it shows those comments in the browser.
