I like the way TwitBox displays messages in separate boxes, which makes them clearer to read. Also, the attached profile picture helps a lot to recognize senders. TwitBox can manage several Twitter accounts simultaneously, but be careful when adding them – I kept on getting an error message when trying to delete an account I added by mistake.

TwitBox is a great desktop twittering application with support for posting twits and following updates in several different accounts.

TwitBox is a Vista . NET client for the Twitter messaging service that is all the rage these days. TwitBox isn’t anything earth shattering - it’s just a simple interface that lets you view and send to your Twitter Timelines.
