    One of my personal favorite Twitter clients, Echofon, has announced the official release of its desktop Twitter client for the mac.

    Despite Twitter’s acquisition of Tweetie and confirmation that Tweetie 2 for the Mac will soon come to the desktop, Echofon seems to be striving forward with development.

    So what are these unique features I speak of, well aside from a clean UI, Echofon for Mac features keyboard navigation and shortcuts, multiple accounts, super easy media sharing (screen captures, current iTunes song, or current page in Safari) and icons on tweets so you can easily spot different types of tweets (video, music, photo tweets etc.).

    Syncing is another feature unique to Echofon. Unread tweets are synced between the Echofon for Mac and Echofon for the iPhone, with little effort on your part.

    Above all of the above, the most intriguing feature for me is “Never Read the Same Tweet Twice”. If you’re following the people within a particular industry, it’s highly probable that you’ll see the same tweet float on by which can be frustrating. With this feature, Echofon aims to solve that. I can’t confirm how well this works just yet but it’s an interesting feature all the same.

    Echofon is free or $20 bucks for an ad-free version.
