Twitter is a popular online social networking service that allows Internet users to share and read short messages called "tweets". This program is a desktop client for the aforementioned service that enables you to access and manage your Twitter account without using your default browser.

You can use this utility to post tweets, subscribe to other people's accounts, check the latest posts of your friends, and much more. Its interface is very intuitive so you can easily figure out how to post tweets, send messages to one of your friends, etc.

The program uses minimum CPU resources, displays notifications whenever your name is mentioned in a tweet, and allows you to define a global hotkeys for immediately revealing its main window.

Another advantage is that the application is available in dozens of languages. It also comes with a powerful search tool which helps you find the account you need within moments.

Cutting a long story short, you should give this app a try if you're looking for an alternative to checking your Twitter account with your default Web browser. The program is very simple to use, sits quietly on your Menu Bar without slowing down your Mac, and is free.
