    Twitter Client App - What do you use?

    Just wondered what apps/clients people were using to manage their twitter accounts? I've never really used in it anger and mainly use it like an RSS feed for monitoring news sites. Even though I'm only following around 30-40 accounts I seem to be getting hundreds of tweets each day to the point that it's virtually unmanageable!

    Any recommendations on apps or suggestions on how to filter/organise the tweets?

    I use tweet deck on my mac - the web interface isn't bad either.

    Thanks, having a play with it and creating lists for my Twitter feeds just now. If anything the web interface is actually better than the app from what given it's virtually identical and saves the hassle of installing it. I'm surprised Twitter don't make their web UI more like tweetdeck as the standard interface rapidly becomes useless as soon as you follow more than a couple of dozen people.

    PC - www.twitter.com on web browser
    Mac - Tweetbot for Mac & Official Twitter app
    iPhone - Tweetbot 2 & Official Twitter app

    For some reason I've never been able to get on with TweetDeck.

    I use Tweetium on my Windows PCs & Tablets.

    Metro only and costs £1.99, but definitely worth it.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I've setup Tweetdeck with lists of the feeds I've been following and it's all way more manageable now. I've actually ended up un-following most of the previous feeds and only left contacts I personally know and want to message directly. That way my main feed has hardly any tweets in it and if I want to check on a specific topic I can just refer to the relevant list.

    Is there any downside to 'following' people via lists rather than directly?

    I have used Twitter clients on a desktop before but always end up going back to the website. Thankfully my account is old but small enough to manage via the site. As for mobile, WP8 official Twitter client for me.
