Twucket... Maybe you're a Twitter user. Maybe you'd rather use a standalone program to access Twitter, instead of using a Web browser. Maybe you've tried other Twitter clients and found them lacking, and maybe, just maybe Twucket is what you've been waiting for!

Twucket is a new Twitter client for Mac OS X Leopard. It's designed to use a minimal amount of screen real estate, so you can keep an eye on your Twitter feed in a window small enough to leave open all the time.

Twucket runs in a normal window. Unlike some other Twitter clients which use "special" windows
What's New
Version 1.2:
  • Improved look of main display.
  • Any tweets you post from Twucket will now show up as coming "from Twucket" (instead of "from web") wherever that's supported, such as on twitter.com itself.
  • We now have Growl support, so if Growl is installed on your machine it will notify you of new tweets according to your Growl preferences, including audio alerts etc.
  • Safari-style searching; A slide-down text field lets you search fetched tweets. For now this only searches the text of the tweets you've received since you last launched Twucket.
  • Resizable input field; Grab the divider above the input field to make it larger.
  • Improved handling of various errors reported by Twitter during heavy tweet times.
  • Fixed a bug where the results retrieved from Twitter were cached, so in certain situations you'd never see any new tweets!
Version 1.1.0 released 2008-06-13:
  • Added preference setting for twitter update interval (between 1 and 60 minutes).
  • Fixed problem with ampersands in sent tweets (sent messages were truncated after the first ampersand).
  • More robust handling of error reports from Twitter.
  • Removed unused Help menu entry; Added Help menu items to send feedback and to visit the Twucket homepage

The app can't login to Twitter ... I suspect things have moved on since June 2008.

Smooth. Simple. and just quietly there. and Free!

If you're used to all the bells & whistles that other Twitter clients use/have - Growl Support, Direct Message, Updating images/clocks - then this isn't for you.

It took me a few to get used to the complete lack of things.

Great Job! and Thanks.

Freeware cocoa twitter client! built in spell-check, dictionary, text-to-speech! Sort of no-frills, otherwise, but it's free without ads unlike Twitterific, and not Adobe Air driven like Twhirl. Very nice, so far.

Twucket... Maybe you're a Twitter user. Maybe you'd rather use a standalone program to access Twitter, instead of using a Web browser. Maybe you've tried other Twitter clients and found them lacking, and maybe, just maybe Twucket is what you've been waiting for!

Twucket is a new Twitter client for Mac OS X Leopard. It's designed to use a minimal amount of screen real estate, so you can keep an eye on your Twitter feed in a window small enough to leave open all the time.

Twucket runs in a normal window. Unlike some other Twitter clients which use "special" windows designed to hover in front of your other windows, Twucket behaves like a normal Mac application. Click it and it comes to the front; Drag another window in front of it and it goes behind the other window, just like you'd expect. Thousands of applications work this way; Why should a Twitter client behave differently?

When you receive new messages from Twitter, Twucket remains remarkably quiet. You'll hear no chirping, crowing, bleating, or anything else. For that matter, Twucket's app icon won't flash, bounce, wave at you, or do flips. Imagine the simplicity of new messages appearing without fanfare in your Twucket window. Isn't life noisy enough?

Twucket is free software, with no embedded ads or other annoyances. Download it, take it for a spin, share it with your friends.
