    I'm using Twitterific, but I'm starting to get annoyed with it.

    What do you guys think is the best Twitter app for Mac?

    i just use twitter in Safari. I never liked the idea of a dedicated app for something so basic. The official twitter app does have a cool right click on selected text to tweet feature though.

    I just use the website - can't see the need for an app for it on my desktop to be honest (same with Facebook)

    I just use Twitter official app. Works fairly well and has a clean interface.

    The old Tweetie Mac app. The new Twitter app sucks IMHO.

    I have become quite found of Hootsuite-mostly because it is one of the few social media apps that works with Linkedin (or at least one of the better apps that works with Linkedin)

    Echofon all the way!

    I like a dedicated app because when I am just browsing, I can keep it off to the side and see tweets in real time.

    I've been using Twitter for Mac since it was Tweetie. Love the simplicity.

    For fast, easy to read and realtime experience use the official "Twitter for Mac"

    If you have just one account, the Twitter app or Echofone are both nice. If you want to manage multiple social feeds Tweetdeck or Seesmic are nice and have Chrome apps so you can use them in browser and not install locally.

    Twitterrific here. Love the UI. And I'm the opposite as other; I much prefer an app over the website.

    I've noticed there are a number of "best twitter app" type threads but no polls to provide a quick summary of opinions since an outdated one in May 2009. Please consider voting on the poll I've just setup so that it becomes useful (i.e. based on a significant number of votes): http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1256322

    Thanks, and apologies for cross-posting.
