TweetDeck is a fantastic app, don’t get me wrong. However, HootSuite offers the candy that’s more satisfying to my taste buds. My Twitter apps are what I call “always-on” because they’re one of the few apps I leave running and visible at all times. So, switching apps isn’t something I take lightly.

HootSuite has a ton of strong suits; being a web app that does not need a plugin or Adobe Air to function makes it more attractive. HootSuite also helps you to keep track of conversations across major social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace,, WordPress and Foursquare from a single web page.
