Top 10 Twitter applications for windows mobile phones

Twitter : Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author’s profile page and delivered to the author’s subscribers who are known as followers.

9: Twobile

Twobile (pronounced Twoh-bul, a mixture of the words “Twitter” and “Mobile”) is a new Twitter client for users of Windows Mobile Pocket PCs. Initially a personal project designed to help access various services provided by Twitter, the project began in mid 2007 and had remained in prototype status for nearly a year. In early 2008, it was decided that since there was a lack of sufficient Windows Mobile Twitter clients that addressed nearly all the services that Twitter provided, the project was moved from a prototype to a publicly available version


10: Twaddle

Twaddle supports most of the core features found on Twitter and seems to pack a pretty good punch in its infancy. The next version should be out soon and will support some of the missing features you’d expect out of a Twitter client. Be sure to keep an eye on Twaddle because it’s very much in active development.
