TweetSwitch is a new project from the team behind London-based Comufy, the communications platform for businesses. Built on top of Comufy’s technology, TweetSwitch provides a simple but deceptively powerful service, enabling you to send and receive Twitter updates via various Instant Messaging (IM) clients.
At its most basic, the functionality provided by TweetSwitch is similar to Twitter’s original support for IM, which the company was later forced to pull due to too much strain on its servers. Others have stepped in to fill the void, such as tweet.im, excla.im and potentially IMified. In that sense TweetSwitch has plenty of competition. But it’s the way in which you can filter tweets and send them to multiple IM clients that sets the service apart.
