If you are one of the lucky few who have managed to bag yourself a Google+ account, but like most, don’t want to have to keep posting updates to various social networks then fear not, +Agent G is here to help! On the other hand, if you have still not got your self an invite, check out my other post on how to get one here.
Now, to get up and running with +Agent G you will first of all need to configure your new +Agent G account. Head over to the +Agent G homepage, and logon with your Twitter account. Now, copy your ‘Unique’ code from the +Agent G page, and head on over to Google+.
Paste your unique code into the status box, but make sure you only select +Agent G as the recipient for the message, and hit send.
Once that’s done, head back over to the +Agent G homepage, give it a quick refresh, just to make sure both your accounts are linked.. Once done, you can now add +Agent G to any Google+ status updates you want posting to Twitter!
It really is as simple as that.
With the recent launch of the all new Apple Mac App Store, came the arrival of the official OS X Twitter client. Now, although there are countless twitter based clients available for OS X, the official client has entered the charts near the top in my opinion.
The client sports a very slick and basic interface, with the various twitter site features in a greyed out menu down the left hand side, and the main content down the right. This is a design which is certainly not common amongst other offerings in the field.
In an also unusual design is the ‘New tweet’ and new ‘DM’ windows, they are actually separate from the client and can be conveniently placed anywhere around your Mac’s screen. This along with the applications short cut keys can make tweeting whilst in the middle of things in other applications a breeze.
I am, however, slightly loathed to accept and install the application myself, as I prefer applications such as TweetDeck, with their ability to post direct into several sites at the same time. However, considering its their first attempt at a native OS X client – I think it’s a pretty good attempt.
You can download the all new Twitter client from the new Mac App Store.
