The introduction of short URLs made the tweeting experience complete. About 14% of all Twitter users login to their accounts via the web(twitter.com). All the others use a Twitter client that suit their tastes and needs. I have gone through several and there are many to choose from. The more popular ones are TweetDeck, Twitpic, Twitter for iPhone, UberTwitter, Twitterrific and Tweetie for Mac, to name a few. The choice depends on which candy catches your eye.
