Use Twitter on your Smartphone

If you can't get enough of Twitter and want to keep tweeting even when you're not at a computer, then give Tiny Twitter a try.
Tiny Twitter allows you to check your Twitter feeds and send tweets from your Windows Mobile device. Ultimately, it represents a much cheaper way of spreading the word from your mobile than using Twitter's SMS-sending function.
Using Tiny Twitter is a straightforward affair for anyone who has used the Twitter service before. Once you've signed into your account, you're presented with a list of the latest updates from the feeds you're subscribed to. Adding your own updates is simply a matter of clicking 'Tweet' and tapping in your message. Tiny Twitter lets you know how many characters you've got left as you type. Like the full Twitter, the app allows you to insert photos, taken from your camera phone into your message. You can even enter your precise location automatically by harnessing your device's GPS capabilities.
Although there are some useful interface customization tweaks and synchronization options in its settings menu, Tiny Twitter is still very much a stripped-back version of the Web service, and many of the profile management and people-finding tools of Twitter aren't included.
Nevertheless if you're keen to keep up with updates and spread the word about what you're doing every second of the day, then Tiny Twitter represents a handy mobile solution.
