Buzzbird – Yet Another Cross Platform Twitter Client
By on June 16th, 2010

buzzbird-logo Buzzbird is an open source MIT licensed Twitter client that helps you to stay updated with the service. The tool is developed on Mozilla XUL Framework. Most of the coding of the app is done using JScript. The application works on Mac OSX, Linux and Windows.

Download Buzz Bird and install it on your computer. The application lets you perform all the necessary actions related to Twitter (like favorite, retweet, reply, direct message). URL shortening is automated. Is.gd and tinyurl are the two services you can choose from.You may also select one from the two methods of posting update while retweeting any tweet; the two formats being Tweet (via @screenname) and RT @screenname: Tweet.   The tool does not support image sharing though.

Techie Buzz Verdict

The app provides a very basic interface for users which makes the tool very easy to use. The cross platform compatibility makes it acceptable to a large number of Twitter users. I have used the tool and have not yet found any major bug in it. Hence on an ending note, I must say that the tool is definitely worth trying.
