After trying Digsby for a week, I have now downloaded and installed Twhirl. Digsby had more options for other social sites like Facebook and MySpace, but it was extremly slow.
So far Twhirl has met my expectations of what I wanted in a 3rd party Twitter client. It is customizable and loads quickly. I will continue to try other Twitter clients but so far I am satisfied with Twhirl.
Twhirl has been aquired by the video chat service Seesmic, here is a good post at Seesmic to explain why.
Sometimes it takes one thing, to make another thing come into focus.
Twitter has been like this for me. I tried Twitter a long time ago, and just could not get into it. However, recently I posted about a great new IM system called Digsby, and Digsby has brought Twitter back into my daily routine with ease. As usual I have to search out a system and see what types of tools, updates, APIs & plugins are available. It’s just my tweaking nature.
I found 2 excellent resources for additional Twitter Tools, everything from standard API calls to WordPress Twitter Plugins. If you want to extend your Twitter, check out these pages for some great additions.

I learned about Digsby on my Twitter account from KIntheHouse over at ShanKri-la.
I am not going to do a full review since K did such a great job reviewing it for us. But I will say, so far I am very impressed. I downloaded and installed Digsby and had it up and running in just a few minutes. The biggest feature for me is the ability to see, read and mark my email without loading the Gmail web page, now that is a big time saver.
