TweetStation

 

Description

TweetStation is a twitter client designed to elevate the level of discourse on Twitter, reduce your stress levels and help you become a better Twetizen.

It also supports iOS 4 and will automatically reload your tweets when you transition to it.

It has all the features that you expect from a twitter client so I will not bother you with a blow-by-blow feature list.

At a conceptual level, this is achieved by applying the cardinal rule of not taking anything too seriously, specially any interactions you might have online.

At a practical level this is achieved with two features. The first feature plays back chicken noises whenever you request more Tweets. The chicken noises have been engineered to remind you that no matter how important an argument appears to be in Twitter, you should not take it too seriously.

When you compose a message with TweetStation music starts playing back in the background. This music was specially selected to elicit in you the desire to write a witty and clever response. The kind of tweet that your local newspaper would publish in the front page, or in their "Social Media Expert" column.

But there is an elephant in the room, and I want to speak directly about it. Many Twitteristas are concerned about the Tweetpocalypse and Twitter's transition to use some bizarro world non-feature called OAuth.

Tweetstation is feature packed and does not suffer from either problem. You can trust that Tweetstation was developed using the best engineering techniques available today, and that you will never be the victim of the Tweetpocalypse and be left incommunicado due to some silly programming mistake. Not in this 32-bit century, not in the next, and not under my watch. If my years of experience taught me one thing is and one thing only, it is when to use a 32-bit integer data type and when to use a 64-bit one. Do not fear dear user, I also master many other data types, but I digress.

But you might be wondering, why another Twitter client, and why now? As a twitterista you know that there is a special bond, an intimate bond if you will, between the twitterista and his twitter client. This bond can exist as long as both the twitterista and the twitter client grow hand in hand, if they co-develop. And I found myself at odds with the design decisions and paths that other twitter clients were taking. In a metaphorical way, I felt uncomfortable, like a Woody Allen character under pressure. But a character that lacked Woody Allen's command of the language.

And this is how TweetStation was born, it was a labor of love, but mostly of social awkwardness when my friends mocked my Twitter client for lacking a chicken noise, or when they suggested things at dinner like "would it not be cool if...". I decided to change all that, and make sure that other twitteristas in the future did not feel the social scorn that I had gone through, and this is why TweetStation's source code is open source.

So I invite TweetStation users to improve it, modify it, blend it and reuse it in any form they see fit to fulfill their childhood dreams of writing a twitter client.

Very nice!

This is one of the most innovative Twitter clients I've used, and I've used them all. Needs a few more options (bit.ly support, maybe TwitLonger, etc.) and some more customization options like font size, picture hosting - then you're right up there with Echofon in my book.

I'll keep it installed to get updates. Props for an awesome app!

5/5 stars

Great app

We love you Miguel. I'm pretty sure your the last bastion of logic in the software world. So when do we get moonlight on IOS?
