Twitter client

A desktop computer or mobile application that displays Twitter feeds. Twitter clients provide more features than the Twitter.com website. For example, the program often displays multiple columns side-by-side, each with a different focus. They offer different ways to organize feeds and may provide integration with Facebook and other sites. Some clients offer desktop and mobile versions that synchronize with each other. See Twitter and Tweetie.
