Twhirl - desktop client for the popular microblogging platform Twitter

Twhirl is a Twitter client, written in Adobe AIR, that enables you to manage multiple Twitter accounts from your desktop. You can view and post tweets (with spell checking), read direct messages, get notified of new messages, manage your followers and more. The program also allows you to post images via TwitPic and can automatically shorten your URLs via a variety of services. Other features include the ability to search tweets using Twitter Search and TweetScan, and follow topics in near-real time with saved searches, as well as support for cross-posting to Jaiku, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn and other sites. Twhirl supports multiple Twitter accounts and also laconi.ca, Friendfeed and Seesmic accounts.

This is multi-platform software, running on both Windows (2000/XP/Vista) and Mac OSX.
