Ironically, despite writing about technology for a living, I have a bad track record when it comes to adopting new web tools. I only joined the Facebook and RSS bandwagons last year for example. At Jerry’s virtual urging, though, I’ve broken down and joined the Twitter revolution. Now you, too, can read all the interesting things I have to say in 140 characters or less.

One of the things that annoyed me about the sign-up process is that it asked me for my GMail/Yahoo!/whatever password in order to add all of the people in my address book to my Twitter watchlist. This is a Bad Idea, and especially now that sites are starting to offer dedicated APIs for this purpose, there’s no excuse for demanding peoples’ passwords.

I’ve got a Mac. Any recommendations for good Twitter-related software I should be checking out?
