Twitter software on a Macbook that knows when you are mentioning?

    I'm a pretty avid Twitter user and love my new Macbook Air (first Apple product I've used other than iPhone) but I've run into a bit of a snag.

    I like having a sidebar on my desktop which shows my Twitter feed. I use Echofon on my phone so I gave it a whirl first. While I like it, I don't like how when I begin a tweet and am mentioning another user, the program does not auto-finish for me like it does in the iOS app. For instance, if I am trying to mention Chris12345 I have to type @Chris12345 but on my phone I can merely type @Ch and Chris12345 will be an option that I can just click. This doesn't sound like a big deal, but it would improve my user experience a lot.

    Is there a Twitter client for Mountain Lion that includes this functionality? Perhaps I should also ask what the best Twitter clients are? The only other one I tried was TweetDeck, but it was a bit too bulky for my tastes.

    Have you tried tweeting from notification centre and clicking the Locate button?

    unless i'm doing something wrong, this method won't autofinish twitter usernames for me.

    just installed this; looks promising so far. i will give it a go.
