Tweet, tweet and (finally!) away…

My second attempt to installing a dashboard widget to tweet, twidget, was a success. It is also simple to install: just provide your login data. Then you can tweet and read your tweets and those of your friends. Really cool!

Tweet, tweet and away… (2nd attempt)

April 22, 2009

I installed twiterlex¬†as recently discussed and I’m quite happy. Installation was terribly simple. I just had to provide login data. But then, it didn’t work. I looked in the homepage of the widget and decided to follow the instructions carefully. The problem is that it is not fully functional. It posts but it doesn’t fetch the latest 30 posts as it is supposed to. Apparently, I’m not the only one with this problem.

So, I’ll try number two in the list, twidget.

Tweet, tweet and away…

April 21, 2009

As I mentioned already, I’m using twitter. I still don’t really know what to post there. Although you can find some cool tips.

BM, I started with an extension in Firefox. Then, I moved on to an extension of Pidgin which allows reading and posting tweets.

AM, I started lookin for plugins to Safari and chat clients that enabled tweets, without much success. Then I stumbled upon this dashboard widgets that can be used to tweet. Once you think of it, the dashboard may be just the right place for tweeting…

I suspected that there are more than one widget for that purpose and soon realized that this is true. As usual, I googled “A vs B” and found an interesting post that recommends twitterlex. So, I will install it now and get back to this later.

And I might just investigate other dashboard applications too…
