Digsby Build 67: It's All About Twitter
Article by George Norman
On 24 Sep 2009
All the recent updates we’ve seen for Digsby, the multiprotocol instant messaging app that provides support for some of the most popular networks today, have been meant to enhance the transparency of the product. And to be more precise, make sure the user knows what he’s installing on his machine – it was revealed a while ago that Digsby comes bundled with a lot of crapware and uses your processing power to make money.

The latest update to be rolled out of the Digsby headquarters is Build 67. This update focuses on making Digsby more useful by embracing Twitter. As the Digsby team puts it, when you post a message on Twitter you don’t just comment on an “isolated newsfeed item”. What you are doing can be called participating in a conversation that takes place at a global level.

With the goal of making Twitter “feel less like a timeline and more like a conversation,” Digbsy Build 67 comes with the following changes:
  • Single column user interface that doesn’t take up your whole screen
  • Tweets are shown in chronological order so you read the conversation as it happens instead of seeing the tail end first and reading it backwards
  • Digsby keeps track of unread counts but you never have to mark tweets as read. Digsby does it for you automatically
  • Whenever you open the Twitter window, Digsby brings you right where you left off so you can continue reading the conversation without missing a tweet
  • Conquer information overload by filtering groups of users out of the main timeline so it is the most useful view and not the most cluttered
  • Snapshot view of recent tweets is still available in the Infobox along with the added ability to reply and retweet right inline
  • Reply and Retweet right from popup notifications so you can stay on task and stay in the loop
  • Automatic URL shortening when you paste links and automatic photo uploading when you paste pictures or screenshots
If you would like to get Digsby, a download location is available here.
