    I think, these twitter methods are too much for one person to adapt to!
    A Top 5 would be genuine!
    I say Ping.FM is the best because it posts to Plurk, Twitter, FB and alot more.
    It also has a nifty URL shortener. Check my post out, its Ping.FM’d :)

    @Chris Loft I did forget Digsby…and I use it.

    @salwa Thanks!

    @AK It is a lot to take on, but I wanted to give everyone all the options they could ever want.

    Great list – nice to see that there are so many options out there. After the purchase of Summize, I wonder if one of these ‘multiple posts’ apps will be the next big acquisition.
