Mobile Twitter Client – Twim

Twim is a mobile Twitter client that runs on devices that are compatible with Java MIDP 2.0. User can browse history, replies, friends, direct messages and public feeds with the application. User can also also update his/her status. Links can be opened in phone browser. You can search for tweets. You can upload photos and videos to Twitgoo, TwitnGoTwitPic, TwitrPix, Twitvid, Mobypicture, Posterous or yFrog services. Twim also supports auto-refreshing (in every 5 minutes) and it will alarm you if new tweets are available by vibrating your phone and playing a small info sound.

    Nokia NFC APIs are now available to all developers
    in an open beta program. These APIs support sharing content by tapping phones
    together, linking phones or accessories and reading/writing tags.

    If you have been thinking about enhancing your apps
    with NFC, now is the time to bring your vision to life. Developers can create applications that
    leverage NFC technology using APIs provided in Qt, Java ME, and Symbian C++. Of
    these options, using Qt is the recommended approach as it’s the core
    development framework for Symbian and is available for MeeGo powered devices as

    Man, thanks so much for the App! It seems that Java is no longer an option for apps these days.. I don’t have the money for an Android-based phone yet!

  • Roma

    hi; tis is app is compatible with alcatel ot 708a?

  • Pablo Andrés Dorado Suárez

    I think you should sign your app. In nokia 2330c It’s shown as a not signed java app, and that menas I have to agree executing network operations each time I want to make something with Twim; and that’s getting me mad!

  • Ibuntonjr

    There is a difference between the jar file above and the checked in source code.  I get no error when I use the source code yet no tweets show up.  When I use the jar file above, I get tweets (except for direct messages, but that’s another story).  Is the checked in code missing authorization info that twitter gives developers?  I just want the same behavior as the jar file above.  Are you sure that you checked in the beta code?

  • Janedoe310

    do you guys know where can i get tumblr in .jar ???

  • aly

    Thank you very much for your software, works fine in my corby samsung, except when trying to get my list in twitter, mark and error

  • fotobus

    Hi, I just loaded Twim to use it on my Samsung S5230. But I get an error message instead of my timeline:
    Couldn’t authenticate. Exception: IOException: BadChangeCipherSpec
    Are there any solutions to solve this problem?

    • fotobus

      Now I entered my password again, to ensure it was correct. The error message changed:
      Couldn’t authenticate. Exception: IOException: Could not initialize network

      It would be very nice to get help. Twim looks great – if it just would work … I used to use snaptü, but snaptü is dead now.

      • fotobus

        Ha! The beta is almost working! I was just too shy to try it out.
        Just the Direct Messages now don’t work. Message:
        “Error from Twitter: This application is not allowed to access or delete your direct messages”
        What a pity.

        I’ll try more of the functions of Twim by the time. I am happy so far, that I can see my timeline and sent tweets.

        Oh, and I have problems with the TwitPic-Support. Nothing happens. It would be great, if this could be fixed! It would give the mobile cam more sense.

        Just a suggestion, if you still work on Twim:
        The Buttons on the top are very small and hard to touch, because they are in the zone of the display, where it must be calibrated very exactly to get them touched exactly. Perhaps you can put them all in the menu.

  • Mikela

    fantastic. thank you so much! :) my ole faithful phone could do everything but email, so twitpic-ing was a nono. not anymore. a million thanks and praises!

  • Andy

    I am not sure if you can help me but I tried googling my problem and nothing came up. I am using this app on a LG GD510 and everytime I try to load my tweets, I get this error saying “Failed to validate oauth signature and token”. I kind of got that it had something to do with the time but i’m not sure exactly, and i’d like someone more experienced to actually help me out on this one… Thanks in advance!!
