Seesmic released on Friday a new version of their Twitter client called Seesmic Web. Although it is still a preview, it offers a really productive interface for managing user communities (something we spend about an hour on every day).
Here is what it looks:
Here are 5 reasons why we like it:
- Imports/Sync search queries with twitter account
- Offers a compact view to scan through twitter messages
- Ability to click and mark specific tweets as favorite
- Ability to inline and reply to a specific tweet (the in-lining allows you to save a ton of back and forth scrolling)
- Ability to hover and see profile of a user (including key follower/following information as well as if you are already following that user)
The combination of those 5 features make it a great tool to effectively support a community.
Couple of feature requests:
- Offer a direct URL to a specific search result page to allow users to more easily bookmark specific pages
- On hover, in a search result show me the last 2 tweets matching keyword search + from that user. Would allow the user to get a quick history of the interaction with that user (twazzup does this really well!)
- There seems to be a small glitch in that the favorite status does not persist on a search listing after a refresh
