STILL looking 4 desktop or web client that shows msg thread: TweetDeck- click on "in reply to" Nambu shows *future* replies. Huh?
Last time I whined about that or similar, the reply I got (you know who you are!) was why not do one (write a client) yourself? OK, OK - i will. But that's the problem: I'm taking the Stanford class on iPhone development (http://www.stanford.edu/class/cs193p/cgi-bin/index.php), where a big homework assignment is to write a Twitter client, but that's 4 weeks starting 4/20.
But, wait - Dave Briccetti published a cool sample app showing how to do this in Scala (http://briccetti.blogspot.com/2009/03/simple-twitter-client-bay-area-scala.html)
And of course, there's the JavaFX version - TwitterFX (http://kenai.com/projects/twitterfx)
But that's after the iVolunteer project I signed up to help, and my day job!
Bottom line: Less Twitter *reading* and more Twitter *doing*!
