Proudly announcing my very own Twitter client, TweetBytes! Bursts of short spans of coding over four nights. Built using PHP, TweetBytes uses OAuth to connect users to Twitter, whereby the user need not reveal his password to the application.
TweetBytes facilitates Twitter access through text messages, and is a complete SMS based Twitter client. But I’ve put in enough effort to make sure it isn’t largely inferior to the web and smartphone clients. And well, it surely beats their ass up in the sense that it requires no Internet! Just carry it along in your phone, and access it from anywhere through text messages, thanks to txtWeb.
The front end development and the code for OAuth authentication took as much time as developing the back end features of the client. Check it out here.
Here come my first tweet from #TweetBytes!
