Twitter is a site that engages you interest and keeps you absorbed for hours together once you log in, reading the updates others have posted and posting some of your own. It is a fact that many Twitter users find it easier to use Twitter clients rather than the interface. This is because many of these clients have great features and also support notifications for your @mentions and direct messages among other things. Not only that you can also control the content you view to ensure that this does not disturb your workload.
The thing is Twitter axes the capabilities of 3rd party clients by controlling its API so that many users revert back to the web Interface. Then in that case your browser can be your Twitter Client and a good one at that!

Chominnitweet will actually let you tweet from the Omnibar by typing tw and hit space before typing in your tweet. Press enter to send the tweet. Only thing that seems missing is looking up how many characters you have typed.

If you are sharing links from your browser on Twitter then you will copy URLs or making use of Tweet buttons to tweet the entire page. TweetRight will let you select a single image from a text on a web page.
This one will enhance the image viewing experience on Twitter. You can view Instagram images on Twitter’s interface. You need to simply click on expand in any tweet that has Instagram Link and the extension will show the preview.
