Twitter and Yahoo IM: Quick Communications on the iPhone

Megaphone Image to illustrate broadcasting communication with IM and Twitter I finally signed up for Twitter. I’ll be investigating several options for ways to incorporate that type of “quick update” here on WickedBlog for those times when I’ve got a quick little something to say and I’m out and about with the iPhone.

I’m testing two iPhone Twitter options now:

At first blush, I prefer the Hahlo.com version — simply because the interface offers buttons that are a bit larger and easier to press with a finger and it’s black. I like black. I despise the color blue. I know… that makes me un-American. Whatever.

PocketTweets offers an archive option I don’t see on Hahlo — but it’s a BLUE interface, and it also advertises itself on every one of my tweets. So, until such time as I decide that I need functions that Hahlo doesn’t offer (and I can’t imagine when that would be), I’ll stick with Hahlo.

I’ve also missed having access to an IM product (something I used alot with my Treo devices).

So far, it looks pretty sweet — but it’s late and everyone I know is already in bed… so I’ll be trying it out tomorrow to make sure there aren’t any snags.
