    Hey guys I see this question all the time on this site about the pro's and con's of these 3 clients.

    Did a review for some other friends of mine that were asking me which was best and thought I'd share it here!

    Enjoy and feel free to critique, read it with the link below.

    I prefer Seesmic... @mentions and FB integration are nice. I would prefer a single stream though.

    Tweetdeck is a close second; never really cottoned to Hootsuite.

    yeah those Seesmics integration with FB is beast. I loved that selective status update part of it.

    Seesmic owns all of them. The UI and the speed simply can't be compared with tweetdeck or hootsuite.

    I think Tweetdeck is the way to go. It has one feed for Twitter and Facebook streams. Also, it's interface is incredibly easy to use (not to say the others' aren't) and it looks great.

    I like Tweetdeck, just a bit clunkier than Seesmic (to me). In truth, I think one reason I like Seesmic is it reminds of Socialscope on BlackBerry. But, as noted, it is missing the combined stream that I crave.

    I fix this by using Seesmic with LauncherPro Friends Widget. I can do light management of FB and Twitter from the widget, and for heavy lifting, I invoke Seesmic directly from the widget.

    Do any of these have goo.gl as a shortener? Because between that and the scrolling widgets, I honestly prefer Plume as my Twitter client of choice.

    TweetDeck FTW right now. I want more customizations in it though.

    But Plume (hate the new name AKA Touiteur) was actually the best of all of them at one time.

    Seesmic is my number one choice. As a back up i use the official Twitter app.

    are there no concerns with these apps having access to all that sensitive personal data on facebook? i'm sure they're all legit companies, but the fewer people in my business the better (because i'm doing things that are oh so sneaky!... but not really). even just having the facebook app makes me uncomfortable. it makes me feel like facebook is following me, always watching, always learning, and taking wayyyy more info from me and much more frequently on my phone than my computer. then again... i may just be paranoid.
