#Tip of the day for journalists: Use Tweetbot to mute tweets auto-posted by other apps

Yesterday’s tip of the day for journalists suggested using the new Tweetdeck as a journalistic tool. That sparked some debate on Twitter clients with recommendations for Tweetbot, available for Mac (at £13.99) and iPhone (£1.99).

Tweetbot launched for Mac desktop last month and was hailed by Matthew Panzarino of The Next Web as “probably the last great Twitter client for Mac” and “powerful enough to replace Tweetdeck for some users”.

Data journalist Adrian Short has a tip for Tweetbot users, recommending them to ‘mute’ tweets sent by third-party apps, such as Foursquare. Therefore when using Tweetbot to view your Twitter stream you will not see Foursquare updates from people checking-in and auto-posting to Twitter.

Short has created a picture of some useful Tweetbot mute suggestions.

Due to Twitter restrictions, Tweetbot can only sell a certain number of Tweebot accounts. If you are a Mac user and have a spare £13.99 it is worth buying now.
