When I am working during the day, I often don't have time to closely monitor my Twitter stream. I still want to keep in touch with what is happening in the world, though, so when I found this web site, Dextr, I started using it almost every day.
DEXTR is a Twitter client for your second screen. It's not complicated - it shows recent tweets, one at a time, large enough to read across a room.
It should work well on any modern browser, including iPhone/iPad and Android devices.
To get started, sign in below. You'll be redirected to Twitter to allow DEXTR read-only access to your account, and then redirected back here to begin using it. You can sign out at any time.
You can run Dextr on any computer that supports a modern browser, so it could be a great use for that older laptop or PC you have stashed away in the closet or a screensaver-like display on a machine that is busy doing something else.
As you might imagine, it also makes a great display for your huge HDTV when your aren't watching TV. I have no love for daytime TV, so even though I work from home, it is rarely on, unless it is showing Dextr or some other web-based information. The text on the web page automatically expands to the size of the window, so you can put it up full screen for a true "lean back" Twitter experience.
