TweetDeck for Twitter

What is the best way to use Twitter? Is it to tell your friends and followers that you've just made a cup of tea? That you are hungover or even just plain tired?

I believe that Twitter can be much more than this. Using Stumbleupon, I managed to find a blog (I believe it was Seth Godin but can't be sure) saying that when arriving at a hotel, the author realised that he was missing the power charger for his Macbook. 30 minutes after placing this fact on Twitter, a nearby Twitter user brought a spare one around to the hotel. I can't imiagine that happening even 3 years ago.

So in that vein, I have uncovered TweetDeck, a third party app designed for you to keep an eye on all of your Tweets, and their history in one useful place.

Is it any good, is it useful or is it just another program, and a password for you to remember?

TweetDeck is an extension of Twitter and the beta can be found here.

Discuss (as they used to say in written examinations...)
