What is your Twitter client of choice?

I recently moved to a retina display Mac, and so have had to give up the official Twitter application as I was having to strain my eyes to read the blurry text. Anyway, I'm now looking for a replacement client. What do you use and why?

So far I have considered both Osfoora and Tweetbot. Osfoora is out of the running because of a bug with retina displays that has been outstanding since June, and Tweetbot is in my opinion just too expensive.

I use TweetDeck & love it... I've been using it for years, even back when I had a Windows machine.

I just use Twitter's own client. The only other client I'd even remotely consider is Tweetbot. But, at the price of $20, I just don't see the value in getting it, for a service that is non-essential.

The official twitter client is great. But I adore Tweetbot. It is pricey though.

Tweetbot, hands down. While it may be expensive, that's all because of how Twitter handles 3rd party tokens.

Tweetbot.

iCloud timeline sync alone is worth it to me.

I gave up on Twitter and moved to app.net.

I would rather be the customer rather than the thing for sale.

Use Tweetbot on both Computer and iOS, well worth the money in my opinion

Twitterific, its clean and simple. It synchronizes over all devices so I don't have to scroll back to where I left.

Tweetbot. Thought may be expensive but is the best choice for a Twitter Client.

Twitter app is fine, we won't be expecting too much from a free application on the App Store.

Osfoora is also cool. Not as expensive as Tweetbot and has some cool abilities.

I use TweetDeck on my laptop and on my iPhone. It's free and very nice (albeit missing some features it used to have… alas).

Tweetbot on the phone and the Twitter web site on the Mac.

I also use the official client. So far no ads (promoted tweets). I switches to Tweetbot on iOS because of ads
