Organize your Twitter feeds via tabs with YoruFukurou for Mac

Filter and organize your Twitter feed and manage multiple accounts with YoruFukurou for Mac.

Twitter changed the way we are able to receive and share meaningful information online, but it's still a challenge to manage it efficiently. In an attempt to simplify your social updates from Twitter, YoruFukurou for Mac lets you create separate filters to display only what is most relevant to you. The program seems well packed but it is not too intuitive.

YoruFukurou for Mac offers a good-looking interface but lacks intuitiveness. For instance, the Follow button, which is a seemingly obvious function for a Twitter client, is hard to find. First you need to click the avatar, then a small arrow and go two levels deeper before you see the desired button. Even if you know the name of someone you want to follow, it's quite hard to find them. The search field returned conversations mentioning tags close to the name but, surprisingly, never the actual person. After a few unsuccessful attempts, it was clear that the Web interface of Twitter is more efficient for such tasks. What we did like is that this program seems to offer a lot of filtering options and customizable searches. While beginner Twitter users may find these a bit complicated, advanced users will find them useful for managing large numbers of feeds.

If you already know your way around Twitter's Web site and feel you've hit its limits, then YoruFukurou for Mac will offer a lot more freedom and filtering options. Beginners might be better off sticking to the basic Twitter platform.
