*UPDATE* Tween the client of twitter | pbtweet for Twitter user script and bookmarklet for Firefox, Safari, Opera and Chrome

I did search for an open source desktop client for twitter in a small size and many config options without requirements of extra installations such as Adobe Air and if possible without installer in a small compact simple GUI (User Interface).
I do not put much emphasis on design but on the functionality.

A friends gave me the right links:*[Twitter]

* OS: Windows 2k/XP/Vista
* .Net Framework 2.0 SP1(or later)

Application Size about 1,5 MB

Client of Twitter. Free software(GPL3)
Twitter: kiri_feather
Developer: Takeshi KIRIYA (
Developer: Moz (

Twitter, ソフトウェア, Tween

Tween is the client program of twitter.
Software requirements

* OS: Windows 2k/XP/Vista
* .Net Framework2.0 SP1(or later)


Not use twitter API, but get the html(/home,/replies,/directmessage) from twitter web page and scrape it.

State is beta, so if you have any problems or requests, please contact to @kiri_feather freely.

The icons using in Tween are created by Minami. (Thanks a lot!)

You can replace the icons in Tween. Make a folder in the binary placed folder, and rename 'icons', then put some icons in the folder.

You can get extra icons here.
