An open love letter

Tweetie 2.1 logo

This is an open letter to exclaim my love of Tweetie (iTunes). She’s the beautiful little iPhone application that makes Twitter use bearable again. This is also to her mom and dad, Mr. and Mrs. Atebits. Without you we would never have our sweet Tweetie.

There’s more to an iPhone app than looks, but Tweetie’s user interface is pretty hot, so I can’t complain. I love the way she remembers where I was when I leave her, and the way she refreshes so simply. Although I must admit I preferred her blue icon before she had the makeover, but I truly can’t complain. Tweetie Screen Shot

I love a girl with brains too, Tweetie is a downright genius. Her ability to run multiple accounts and saved searches makes my use of Twitter so much faster. Plus, she always knows where I am using geolocation.

I always respect a girl who can cut to the chase and get right to the point. Using the 2.1  upgrade, I can now access my saved lists!

This is Tweetie’s major win for me. The ability to start up the app and get right to the people and topics that I am most interested in has me so happy that we’re together. Heck, she even keeps track of my retweets!

As far as Twitter iPhone apps go, you’re the only one for me sweet Tweetie.

What about you? Who’s your favorite Twitter mobile app?

  • Nice post Dave.

    I have tweetdeck installed now, but because of that I almost never actually use it. It only loads 3-4 new tweets per column and it is obvious that I actually have dozens if not hundreds of tweets that I am missing each day.

    Just to be clear before I spend the $3 – does tweetie support filtered lists like tweetdeck (So I can have a list of just nashville twitters, college friends, work friends, etc..)

    What is it that made you choose tweetie over tweetdeck, as tweetdeck is free?

  • Thanks Chris.
    I still love and use Tweetdeck as a desktop app. I actually use it for work
    related tweets and I use Seesmic desktop for my personal.

    You can make custom searches in Tweetie and save those searches to return to
    later. The multiple accounts is also a huge thing for me. Tweetdeck didn't
    (doesn't?) include that feature when it was released. I had heard great
    feedback on Tweetie from friends, so I decided to give it a try.

    Then came the love. :)

    Let me know what you think.


    Find me here:

  • I use Twittelator Pro |

    It pretty effectively handles multiple accounts and has a ton of options for both using the app, and where things post to. It supports lists, and retweets along with saved searches. I haven't used Tweetie but I'm downloading it now to give it a try.

  • I haven't heard of that one, but I'll check it out. Thanks.

    Let me know what you think of Tweetie.

  • It was one of the first ones that I used so as usual I think folks tend to
    get stuck in what we know. For me I'm used to it, and I can navigate it
    quickly/easily. I also have TweetDeck for iPhone installed, and Summizer
    (Twitter Search/Trending Topics only).

  • I use Tweetdeck and Seesmic on the desktop. I enjoy them both.

  • The latest version of Tweetdeck supports LinkedIn, the new Retweet feature (with the ability to still edit if you want), list integration, and more. I downloaded it today, and it's working well for me.

  • Me too . I'm loving it!

  • Hello!


    I just made a loan to someone in Bolivia using a revolutionary new website called Kiva (

    You can go to Kiva's website and lend to someone across the globe who needs a loan for their business – like raising goats, selling vegetables at market or making bricks. Each loan has a picture of the entrepreneur, a description of their business and how they plan to use the loan so you know exactly how your money is being spent – and you get updates letting you know how the entrepreneur is going.

    The best part is, when the entrepreneur pays back their loan you get your money back – and Kiva's loans are managed by microfinance institutions on the ground who have a lot of experience doing this, so you can trust that your money is being handled responsibly.

    I just made a loan to an entrepreneur named 28 De Julio Group in Bolivia. They still need another $1,900.00 to complete their loan request of $4,950.00 (you can loan as little as $25.00!). Help me get this entrepreneur off the ground by clicking on the link below to make a loan to 28 De Julio Group too:

    It's finally easy to actually do something about poverty – using Kiva I know exactly who my money is loaned to and what they're using it for. And most of all, I know that I'm helping them build a
    sustainable business that will provide income to feed, clothe, house and educate their family long after my loan is paid back.

    Join me in changing the world – one loan at a time.
