It's an understatement to say that we TUAW bloggers have caught the Twitter
bug, as many of us have personal accounts in addition to our main TUAW twitterings
. With our latest web 2.0 obsession live and kicking, Glenn Wolsey
just made our day by posting some sneak peek screenshots of a Twitterrific 2.0 beta
(what, Iconfactory: no TUAW private beta love?). There are apparently over 25 new features and changes in this major upgrade to The Iconfactory
's slick and sexy client, and I can personally say I'm the most excited for the option to have names and tweets both in-line (pictured). I'm not quite so hip on the decision to leave the username on its own line though; why not simply bump the tweet up next to their name like most IM clients? This would save a lot of space by compacting updates and leaving room for more tweets.
Personal UI design requests aside, head over to Glenn's post
for details and screenshots on some other big changes, including an expandable text entry area and the ability to chose between a few update sounds. If you're just as excited as we are to get your hands on Twitterrific 2.0, stay tuned here or follow their Twitter account
for the news of when it drops.
