Twitter is all over the place and needless to say that if you still don’t have an account, you have already missed the bus, My Friend!! But how can you possibly keep track of all your accounts on several networking platforms like Gmail, Facebook, Skype, Instant Messenger etc? We have found a web-based tool which will save you from that additional burden of logging into Twitter to check your tweets and still be active on the most popular micro-blogging site. Here’s how you do it. TweetSwitch is a free service that allows you to tweet and receive your tweets from any instant messenger or email which anyways are tools you can’t do without.

All you have to do is to log-in to the web service using your Twitter account, and configure the way you want to send and receive your messages. There is absolutely no need to install any new application as your current IM will be used. TweetSwitch currently supports AIM, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Skype and GTalk. In addition, the tool can also be integrated with almost all email providers.

You can add up to 3 accounts on which you would like to receive your tweets. Then, you need to configure the accounts using the 1-2-3 boxes. To do this, you simply drag and drop your accounts into the boxes.Your tweets will be sent to any accounts you put in Box 1.If your tweets can’t be delivered to Box 1 (e.g. if you are offline), the message will be redirected to Box 2 and thereafter to account 3.

Some other interesting features of this web service are:

  1. You can set filter to have a control on the tweets you receive.
  2. You can STOP and RESUME services temporarily by sending a message to TweetSwitch bot with the word ‘stop’ or ‘start’ respectively.
  3. TweetSwitch currently checks and delivers your tweets every 2 minutes which would soon be made more frequent.
  4. SMS support will also soon be available.

This web service will save you from keeping a close watch on yet another social networking account as the same would be done through your messenger or e-mail.

How is TweetSwitch Different from similar websites?

The tool is one of its kind and does not face too much competition from other similar web-based service.
