Twikini is written entirely in native C++ code, and hence realizes maximum performance and the fastest load time possible. It updates your feeds in the background, and leverages the camera, GPS, media, touch screen, keyboard, graphics and storage capabilities of your device in a seamless manner.

The UI is simple and uncluttered, and available as several color themes. Reading Twitter updates is similar to browsing a web page – quickly reply, retweet, favorite, or email other people’s tweets. Posting tweets can be done using the full screen editor.

Twikini also allows setting your location (either manually or using GPS) along with your status updates and has Twitpic integration to post photos with your status updates – Select existing photos or click new ones from your device’s camera. It integrates with Windows Media Player to automatically tweet the song and artist you’re listening to.

Interestingly, Twikini does not have an an Exit option; assuming that most people would want to leave Twikini running in the background. If you must kill Twikini, you can do so using Task Manager. Another workaround is to exit: Click Tools > Switch Account and then hit Cancel.

The current version does not have support for direct messages, but the developers assure that the feature is coming soon. Search would also be added in future releases.

Twikini supports all WinMo devices, which includes versions 5, 6, 6.1 and 6.5. This includes both Pocket PC and Smartphone devices, known as Professional and Standard Edition.
