My last iPhone contract app, ExecTweets for iPhone, is now on the App Store. This is the project that drove the creation of FeedParser (an open source Obj-C RSS parser). Anyway, it’s free, and if you like reading about business advice from top business execs, check it out!

There’s a new site that’s been getting really popular lately called Twitter.
If you haven’t heard of it, it’s basically a status message, like IM, but actually usable.
Twitter provides XML/JSON feeds, as well as a way to post updates over the web, over
IM (using Jabber), or over SMS. You can also receive “tweets” (Twitter updates) that your
friends posted with any of these mechanisms. There are also various applications (such as
Twitterific), if you want yet another way to send/receive tweets.
By far the most powerful aspect of Twitterific is the SMS support. I have free SMS with my
Sidekick data plan, but I’ve never had a reason to use it before. But now I can receive
tweets on my phone all day long, and send my own no matter where I am. For example, I sent
this tweet while in class.
If you want to keep track of what I’m doing, just take a gander at my profile.
And if you sign up for your own account, you can add me as a friend to receive my tweets.
If you add me and I recognize your name, I’ll probably add you back too.
There’s a BBC News
twitter profile. How cool is that?
