Trying out Seesmic Desktop

Well, seeing I’m on Windows 7 and already a Seesmic user, I’ve been tempted by all the noise about Seesmic desktop announced at Microsoft PDC and decided to give it a whirl. It’s YATC (Yet Another Twitter Client), but specifically has been written in WPF and is visually very compelling. Unfortunately it didn’t hit my sweet spot.

I normally use Thwirl, another Seesmic product to manage Twitter and it fits my needs perfectly. It sits at the side of my screen, just below my IM client (Digsby) and lets me keep an eye on my Twitter stream. Sessmit Desktop on the other hand is designed to take up lots of screen space, in order to give you access to multiple accounts, show your reply and private streams separately, etc. It’s an immersive experience, and that’s not really how I use Twitter. It may work for you though, so if you want to give it a spin, you can download it here
