Facebook has about one billion members. I hesitate to say users, because it’s likely that not all account holders are actually users in the active sense. Twitter may have a similar problem. Of the 200-million or so Twitter accounts, sources point out that the vast majority don’t actually tweet, they follow.
If you tweet, you may opt to use a Mac app like Wren. It’s what you use to compose your tweets first.
Wren comes with a list of features straight from the developer’s PowerPoint slides.
- Multiple accounts
- Scheduled tweets
- Draft tweets
- Keyboard shortcuts
- Link shortener
- Fullscreen mode
On the surface, Wren reduces distraction by going to fullscreen mode. Drafts and scheduled tweets are a plus (it’s nice to send a tweet when you’re not near Mac or iPhone). Keyboard shortcuts speed up tweeting and navigating.
Wren is an attractive, affordable, and efficient interface if you’re a Twitter user who actually tweets.
Otherwise, what does Wren do that Twitter’s own app doesn’t do? Fullscreen composing mode to reduce distractions? That’s a feature that lives more in the realm of diminishing returns. It’s another app to learn and manage simply to tweet better. Wren is more for the Twitter user who tweets incessantly or needs to manage multiple Twitter accounts.
