Twitter without the social. Or the network

Tweeker Review

by on January 28, 2011

Do you like social networking? Do you like talking at people, but only on the condition they aren’t allowed to engage or talk back? Then, boy, do we have the narcissism app for you.

Okay, there is perhaps a legitimate use case for an app that does nothing by enable you to post tweets on your account. Maybe we should consider it pure tweeting. No friends list, no replies, no trends. Just sending messages into the ether. If that’s what you want from Twitter, then fair enough.

But we feel that missing out on Twitter’s spreading tendrils and rapid dissemination of information (even if it’s all filthy lies) is skipping half the point of the thing. No contact, no wit, no fun.

None of that tells you the quality of the app, though. It appears simply as a little text box over the screen with a character count. Hit send and your message fires itself off to Twitter’s servers. It all worked fine, so functionally it gets the thumbs-up.

Though 85p isn’t a lot of money, it’s still really too much for something that offers less functionality than some free apps for a very minor speed advantage. It’s not a bad app, but we just don’t think it’s worth it.
