There are two things that I love. My BlackBerry and Twitter. But putting the two together hasn’t always been the #1 priority among BlackBerry software developers. Sure, I could just post to Twitter using a shortcode via SMS TXT, but I also like to see the Twitter Public Timeline, and my friends Timeline. And I want options! And there are those that can’t afford to pay to TXT to a different country everytime they’d like to do a bit of micro-blogging.
TinyTwitter does just all that. Developed by Kevin Cawley from Boulder, CO(kcbigring on Twitter), TinyTwitter is a wonderful bit of software that puts everything Twitter at your fingertips. You can point your BlackBerry browser to http://tinytwitter.com or http://m.ttwt.at and the site will automatically recognize which type of device your running (yes, Windows Mobile devices are supported too) and let you download the application for free. It should tell you automatically but if it doesn’t make sure to download the “Recent Java Enabled Phones (MDIP 2.0)” version of the application.
Among the many options to choose from, here are just a few:
- Sync Settings
- Font Settings
- UI Settings
- Tweet Ticker that runs along the bottom showing your last tweet.
- User specific Timeline option
- And many more
While there still may be some bugs here and there, it’s a great application to add to your BlackBerry software stash. Happy Tweeting!
