If you're like me (hey, it ain't so bad!) you probably have Outlook open all the time. And if you're NOT like me, you tweet all the time, hopping back and forth between your browser and Outlook (and whatever else you're working on—you ARE working on other things besides Twitter...aren't you?). Wouldn't it be great if, through Outlook, you could update your Twitter status, receive your friends' updates, post pictures, and archive, search and group your tweets like you do your email? Indeed it would.
And so, I shall not let my bitter Twitter skittishness deter me from letting you in on what I think is the one of best programs to use when frittering the day away tweeting: TwInbox. In addition to doing all those things I mentioned above TwInbox can also help you to manage multiple Twitter accounts, group tweets, shorten URLs with bit.ly, use Outlook's "Reply" and "Reply All" commands to send twitter direct messages (and @replies)...and more. I have to say, it's one handy program if you're a Twitterite (Twitterist? Twit?). And yes of course it's free! Everything this week was free.
Head over and download TwInbox if this seems like something you could use. You can shoot me a tweet @MSFTCrabby.
And finally, my compatriot, Doug Thomas (@dougthomas), created an Office Casual video explaining how use Twitter in Outlook withTwInbox.
I hope you enjoyed this week of my favorite free things. Have a great weekend, all; be sure to turn off your computers and get out side and hang with the family! (Crabby does not turn on her computer all weekend; it's a promise she made her family.)
