So, it’s probably no secret that I’m a twitter addict. Unlike a lot of twitter addicts, my addiction is not for celebrity sleaze or news updates. Instead I use twitter as a social network much the way some people use Facebook or MySpace. My friends and colleagues that are on twitter are generally technical in nature. Having an in depth minute to minute relationship with these people has created a very tight-knit group of friends. So much so that I travel as much as 7 hours several times per year just to catch up face-to-face.
Recently, I landed on a client that filters out twitter.com. With no access via my computer, I undertook a deliberate and in depth search for a windows mobile client so that I could catch up on twitter (over my lunch break.) I tried a few different applications but I was having trouble finding one that would perform
well super lightning fast, contained an interface that was easy to use, and worked on my winmobile 6.1 device.
Then came twikini. It was referred to me by one of my friends that I met through twitter and I quickly installed it. It is seriously the fastest running application I have on my phone. It’s slick, easy to navigate, and plain simple to use. It has multiple color schemes that allow me to customize the look and feel to allow me to use visual indicators to distinguish replies from standard feeds. Additionally, it integrates twitpic images and links very well.
I fully recommend trying twikini on the win mobile if you are interested in bettering your experience with twitter.
