I’m preparing for my Twitter for Business, eMarketeers course on Wednesday (11 December 2009) and have put together a list of desktop and mobile applications – below. If you have any additions, experiences or recommendations I’d love to hear, as not all uses, phones or desktops are the same.

  1. For the web clients list, I guess twitter.com should be there too.
    Also, HootSuite (http://hootsuite.com/) is another web option worth to be listed.

    Maybe another list should consider ‘enhanced’ posting options, as pictures for instance. In this category probably the two most popular services (web based) are Twitpic (http://twitpic.com/) and yfrog (http://www.yfrog.com/); for video 12seconds (http://12seconds.tv/)
