I’m a HUGE fan of Seesmic Desktop (version 1).
Unfortunately it was shelved by Seesmic years ago, but the software still worked, until this month with the lastest update of Adobe Air.
I’ve been testing and trying Seesmic Web, Hootsuite, and Tweetdeck, but none of them replace the core functionality I need.
I have 4 twitter accounts. I need a HOME stream that combines the incoming tweets from all of these account into one stream,
the biggest AND,
I need to have all of my search results delivered to that stream.
Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, and Seesmic Web will only let me start a new column/tab/stream for each search phrase/keyword/hashtag. This is not workable. For ForestTalk especially, I need to monitor when anyone tweets about certain places/mills/people/companies. It isn’t feasible to watch so much screen space, which is why the original Seesmic desktop is so great because I can merge everything I’m monitoring and just have one column to bounce my eye to every couple of minutes.
I don’t know how anyone could be a current events blogger or journalist without this ability. Am I missing something??
If you know of a twitter client with this capability, even if it is a paid solution, please let me know!
