nice program for the blind twitter user

I have been using this client since OS X 10.7 and I find it very usable for my needs. It’s fully voiceover compatible and uses a completely simple interface design. Unlike the twitter client offered by twitter itself, this one streams inline and in order. This makes it very easy for me to track tweets.

Only problem just now, it still only supports 140 character limit. It would be nice to be ale to use it in 280 character mode.

Best Twitter Client

I can finally follow the twitter timeline in a way that makes sense. Please update to the 280 character limit! Please!
