You may have noted that each day my tweets are posted to my blog, for posterity’s sake, I suppose. I follow lots of people, some of whom are “business” types (mostly software testing types), and the rest of whom run the gamut from rather suggestive to very proper.

One of the software testing people unfollowed me yesterday, and while I do not confuse online “friends” with meatspace friends, I would like this person to be able to read any tweets I share about software testing (had some today with @shrinik, whom I met for a drink last week and who is a very perceptive software tester and testing guru). I believe that the unfollow resulted from some tweets I shared yesterday that were aimed at the “rather suggestive” portion of those who follow me. I have not, however, confirmed this.

So, my question to you all is this: does anyone know of a Windows Twitter client that can cope with showing two Twitter accounts simultaneously? I use twhirl at the moment. This would allow me to separate my business Tweets from my personal Tweets—thus simultaneously avoiding shocking my business Twitter followers and boring my personal Twitter followers.

Yes, I realise I could put one in my browser and use twhirl for the other, and if that is the only solution I accept it. However, I cannot believe that no one else has faced this same difficulty and come up with a neat solution to it.

    i use it to tweet on two different accounts … it’s cross-platform (uses adobe air) … generally pretty featureful.

    I’ve installed it on my computer and will use it for my professional Twitter account. I’ll keep using twhirl for my personal account. That will give me the opportunity to keep them totally separate—no forgetting and tweeting something rude to the professional account. Thanks for your suggestion!

    Id prefer to recommend that you use Hootsuite – the browser version.

    The problem with Adobe Air applications like Tweetdeck & Seesmic, you are limited by API calls made to Even if you 200 API calls per hour, if you are following a number of tweeples, you will definitely run out of API calls, and have to wait till the hour is over before you can get fresh new tweets into your view.

    Just some thoughts to float to you. I follow 741 tweeples and I am frustrated by the constant API calls run-out. I have not checked out how many tweeples you are following; I imagine more than me.
