I am currently using Twitter.

I would like to receive growl notifications for a particular twitter list. However it seems like the current preferences allow notification on a all/none basis.

Do we have an alternative app that offers such an option?

Otherwise I will just create another twitter account and use that for growl.

Tweetdeck is the app you're looking for! It comes with his own growl-like notifications and I use it over a year now. It's just great!

Does Tweetdock also push all already read mentions and messages on every startup? I really hate that about the original twitter app. – gentmatt Dec 1 '11 at 10:02
Nope, once mentioned, Tweetdeck will consider them as 'read' and won't push them! – Michiel Dec 1 '11 at 10:08
Great news! The really sucks ever since Twitter got hold of it :-( – gentmatt Dec 1 '11 at 10:23
Did it work? :) – Michiel Dec 1 '11 at 14:36
Yes. Behaves as expected! I just hope they'll integrate growl notifications in the future. – gentmatt Dec 1 '11 at 15:18
