Mobile Tweete

Mobile Tweete Logo

Tweete was created as an alternative to the mobile web and slandr mobile clients. Twitter mobile web was too featureless, and slandr was too heavy on the bandwidth.

Tweete caters for the middle ground, a combination of commonly used features in a lightweight interface. It has been designed to be fairly customizable depending on your needs.

Logging into Tweete is easy. Simply use your twitter login details, no need to create a new account! Try it out now!

Tweete is currently still in BETA, so be warned. For status updates, follow @tweete or @bmn on twitter. :)


The original version of Tweete was written in August 2008. It was built on a standard LAMP stack with the additional of KohanaPHP as the framework.


The current version of Tweete has been coded with the same set of tools as the original version – with one major difference. We replaced Kohana and PHP with Python and Tornado.
