Secretly Tweet at Work with New Fake Spreadsheet App

Yes, Twitter is now officially inescapable, especially now that the one-and-only Oprah has blessed the wildly popular (and hyped) microblogging service with her magic touch. Even if you're using Twitter on your phone, it's not easy to tweet while at work; Twitter's now-iconic page design is instantly recognizable from across a large room. Fortunately for you cubicle dwellers out there, a free new app (pictured above) melds the boss-appealing and productivity-enhancing visual appeal of spreadsheets with -- what else -- Twitter.

Spreadtweet converts your twittering activity into a mundane Microsoft Excel-esque spreadsheet, and we've been hard at work testing the app out here at the office. Our research shows that unless you're a few inches away from the monitor, there's no way to tell the spreadsheet is actually a Twitter client. The dock icon even looks like Excel! This saves us from having to perform the highly suspicious-looking "minimize all open windows" routine whenever anyone walks by.

Ready to dive in? Spreadtweet is an Adobe AIR application, which means it will run on Mac, Windows, and Linux, and, even better, you can choose from the smooth look of Office for OS X, retro Office 2003 (Windows), or the seemingly ubiquitous Office 2007 (Windows).
