Buzzbird is a free, open source Twitter client that will allow you to manage multiple accounts on the micro-blogging service.

If you are used to a client like Echofon or TweetDeck, your first impression of Buzzbird might be that it looks a little basic. Don't let appearances deceive you, however, because behind the main interface are a host of options, including support for multiple accounts and a built-in URL shortener.

Buzzbird offers all the usual Twitter client options, like posting, retweeting, direct messaging and marking as favorites. It's very easy to view your tweets, and the program also displays profiles without having to open a web browser. With Buzzbird, you'll also be able to view mentions and direct messages.

Buzzbird for Mac also offers great configuration options, allowing you to hide certain services in your Timeline, use a proxy server and even enable visual notifications - as long as you have Growl installed, that it.

Clunky feel aside, Buzzbird is a great new Twitter client.
