Twim, the low-bandwidth, low-fuss Twitter client

Twitter itself seems to be going from strength to strength, the micro-blogging platform that thinks big. Twim is a brand new Java-hosted but very S60-friendly Twitter client, letting you do everything from the comfort of your phone, and Ewan's been trying it out. Here's his Twim review.

Read on in the full article.

Sweet, this is the smoothest, fastest twitter client that I have used on my phone until now.
I am keeping this one, but along with Twibble - just in case I need to do more than this (GPS, photo upload, show on map etc).

Fring

Might be nice, but I'll stick to fring that can also do MSN, Skype and Facebook on top of Twitter.

Although Twim runs in 5th edition touch has not been utilised, you'll have to use the virtual d-pad. Shame.

Nice, but still not perfect. Wonder why nobody made a native S60 twitter client yet. Maybe S60 users and twitter users don't overlap that much? I think that's the case.

There actually is a native Twitter client: WirelessIRC. Unfortunately, it's missing some important features, including notification of new "tweets", the ability to click on URLs to launch a web browser (instead it has a "copy URL" feature; you then have to paste the URL into a browser), and, perhaps most importantly, there's no way that I can see to post anything other than replies to other people's "tweets". Too bad, because it's otherwise a very nice little application.

Yes I use WirelessIRC on my E71 and it works very well. On other phones I tend to stick the the mobile site or dabr.co.uk or similar. However all these mobile solutions work for me as a conscious decision to check Twitter rather than a background thing.
