Recommended Twitter Tool: Echofon

December 10, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Echofon (formerly Twitterfox) is a great, free Firefox add-on for managing Twitter. It unobtrusively rests in your status bar, and allows you to manage multiple Twitter accounts simply and easily with a clean, attractive interface.  You can customize the properties to be notified of incoming tweets multiple ways; they can pop up in the bottom corner of your browser (w/o sound), or you can watch the counter built into the icon in the status bar.  Another cool feature is the button that grabs the link to the page you’re currently viewing and readies it for you to tweet.  www.echofon.com

    As I’m new in Twitter, didn’t know about this add-on. Thanks for the info!

    What i don’t like about echofon is the RTweet option. adds 2 points after the RT: i think that’s a waste of space

      Indeed – that is problematic; I’ve sent the comment suggesting a fix.
