Retry! Help choose between these 2 (better) domains

In this post yesterday I asked for your opinion on two domains.

It turned out the general consensus was that they were both pretty bad!

With this feedback in mind I slept on it and had another search this morning. Here are two alternatives which I am much happier with:

twitkit.com or twitmate.com

My personal feeling is that twitKit sounds better but twitMate describes the product better (it's a service as opposed to a set of tools - basically 'Twitter done for you').

There is also a small branding issue with twitKit in that there's an old, no longer used, Firefox extension with the same name. It's not a showstopper since there is no Trademark or website but they do still have a Twitter handle and github page etc.

With this in mind which do you think is best?

Which is the best domain?
  1. twitmate.com
  2. twitkit.com

    Just a side note. The definition of:

    Twit - a silly or foolish person.

      Good point - this did cross my mind when I was first looking into it. Am hoping people will see past it!

    twitmate is way better IMO !

      Thanks - much appreciated!

    TwitKit sounds like a SDK for developers

      Appreciate the feedback - thanks!

    Twitmate sounds good and all the points you listed are solid reasons for preferring it. I wouldn’t worry any negative connotations of the word twit as it’s obvious you’re basing this on twitter. If I were you I’d give myself a deadline of say 24 hours for divine inspiration and if nothing hits me by then - run with it!

      Sound reasoning. I am going to do exactly that!

    Twitmate is the best of the worst. The word twit doesn't make both options that appealing tbh

      Food for thought - I'm hoping people will realise it's short for Twitter. Thanks for the feedback!

      Thanks - taking the night off and revisiting really helped!

    Any chance you bought twitkit.com? Would love to buy it off of you if possible :)

      Thanks for the interest! I did buy it but I intend to use it for a SaaS version of twitmate.com which will be fully user led. I would consider selling it but it would need to be worth my while :) You can drop me an email at [email protected] if you'd like to make me an offer.
