Using Vienna As An Accessible Twitter Client

In my quest to move all my activities to the Mac one of the first items that needed to be handled was an accessible Twitter client. Although I am not a power user, the number of people that I follow on Twitter has crossed the three thousand mark. This means that there is a need for a precise filtering mechanism that permits one to take a Twitter stream of over Twenty Thousand tweets a day and quickly glean the high priority Tweets.

I chose Vienna version 2.3.4.
This solution is totally accessible with VoiceOver and permits one to specify the RSS entries for each person that I wish to filter. Once the RSS entry has been added to the list to follow one can group various RSS entries into smart search folders which facilitates grouping of tweets by category.

The coolest thing about this solution is that one can actually see the web based twitter post and respond to it directly within Vienna.
