Hey there Twitter fans! How do you keep up with all your tweets and what not while you are on the go? Do you use theof their website? How last year!
I have recently become addicted to The Twitter. Don’t laugh, it can happen to you! Now I am using a mobile application to keep up with tweets on the go. That special something is called Twikini which can be found and downloaded from here. It might be a strange name, but it is an awesome application that offers Twitter for Windows Mobile. It is easy to use and master.
Install the application to your phone / device in whatever manner floats your boat. Next up you will see a new icon on your start menu. Once you start up the application it will build your timeline and depending on your preferences it will display the appropriate amount of tweets on your screen.
You can see my recent activity below categorized by how long ago it was tweeted. These tweets are from my account (in case you want to follow me).
You can click on Menu and My Info to see your information including how many followers you have as well as how many people you are following. You can also see your website and description which you entered in your Twitter profile.
You can see the people you are following and their stats. Click on one of them to bring up their profile.
Looking at Twikini’s options you can control not only how many tweets you see but what you want to see on start up. You can see replies, tweets with @yourusername and much more. You have the option to use Skweezer for webpages that you click on from within Twikini. There is a checkbox to download images – tip: if you are not on an unlimited data connection you should uncheck this checkbox and save some bytes and money!
You can see what Twikini caches by clicking on the cache option. You see the directory where the cache data is stored. For me it is in my phone’s memory so I can keep a close eye on it. You can clear the directory from this screen if your memory is hurting you!
You will also find advanced options like tweeting your current playing song or your GPS location. I tried out these features and do not think I am ready to bombard my readers with them – at least not just yet! If you give them a go let us know in the comments.
All in all I have just got into Twitter in the last 3 months. All I can say is if you find the right people to follow you will be addicted. Seriously, 3 months ago I would have told you that you were plain out nuts if you said I would be looking for and reviewing a mobile Twitter client! I didn’t even know what a re-tweet was.
Which mobile Twitter client do you use? Let us know in the comments.
