Twitter has been one of the most powerful and popular social networking tool which seems to have emerged in the past few years. Initially the social network was limited to web browser, but then came a plethora of apps for desktop and finally when smartphones began to become popular, lot of third party apps and tools were released for all mobile platforms.
But if you are a person who uses your computer more, then it makes sense to have a desktop app for Twitter instead of having it installed on your mobile. Although there are many web based apps like Tweetdeck, Hootsuite and more, some users might still want a desktop app for Twitter.
Sobees is a free and feature rich desktop app which is supported on Windows 7, Vista and Windows 8. It helps you to connect to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn inside one app. There is also full support for Facebook as well. Sobees is based on .NET and is easily installable.
You can update to multiple social sites in one go which is a handy feature.

There aren’t too many desktop based apps right now as the tokens for Twitter are now limited and clients like Janettar cannot sign up new accounts.
