Okay, as you all very well know I am a fan of Twitter, the 140 character micro-blogging platform. I also am a fan of the iPhone. Well until now I have been using Twitter via SMS and getting about 1,000 people’s updates via text message….that is until today.
A new iPhone app (for jailbroken iPhones) was launched today called Twinkle. This program reminds me of look and feel of my favorite Twitter program, Twitterific. It auto-updates every few minutes (keeping in accordance with the Twitter API), shows your @’s and Directs with a nice highlight and icon…but here’s the sweet part. It is location aware, so it can help you find people who are twittering anywhere from 1-252,000 miles from you. This uses the iPhones “Locate Me” feature built into Google Maps.
I will be using this great new program, and you should too, over the next few days to see how well I like it, but as of now I think it is the first thing which could totally replace Twitter SMS for me (which last month I had over 100,000 sms’s). Check some of the screenshots after the jump.
