Tiny Twitter

Tiny Twitter is mobile application that will run on any java enabled device, Blackberry, or Windows Mobile (Professional or Smartphone).  I downloaded the Windows Mobile Pocket PC version and took it for a spin on my AT&T Tilt.

The Tiny Twitter interface (above, on the left) has more bells & whistles than the standard pocket IE twitter interface (above, on the right) at http://m.twitter.com.  With the pocket IE version you are relegated to a text only interface.  However, there is something to be said about keeping things slim when you are on a mobile device.

The Tiny Twitter menu gives you options to post a new tweet, reply directly to a user,  send a direct message, delete a tweet, look a user’s timeline, go to your inbox, and fiddle with your settings.   Unfortunately after you post a tweet, Tiny Twitter leaves you on the ‘post a tweet’ page, rather than taking you back to the main menu.

Under the settings menu, you can edit your login credentials, define your sync period, select an option to play a sound when you receive a new direct message and setup a proxy.

I am pretty impressed with Tiny Twitter and encourage my mobile friends to take it for a test drive.  You can download Tiny Twitter here: http://www.tinytwitter.com/m/ or by visiting: http://m.ttwt.at from your mobile device.

Tip to Pocket PC Thoughts & the Geekzone for this little gem.
