Twidget – View Tweets on Lock Screen

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

Twidget Twidget is a sweet application that allows you to view tweets on your lock screen. When you install Twidget, it will add an icon to your SpringBoard. When you launch the app, you will need to enter your Twitter info. Next, you will need to go into WinterBoard and activate Twidget.

Once you have entered your info and activated Twidget via WinterBoard, you can lock your iPhone or iPod Touch. You should see a menu bar with the options; Friends, Own, Replies, Favorite and Refresh. You will also see a bar indicating that your tweets are loading. The first time it took quite a while for my tweets to load acutally, I ended up deactivating and reactivating it in WinterBoard and then it went. Once your tweets load, you are able to view your most recent 10 tweets by your Friends, your own tweets, your @ replies and your favorites. You can also refresh the tweets using the refresh option. Sometimes it refreshed really quickly, other times it took a while….usually it is pretty quick.

This application is strictly for viewing your tweets. You cannot respond to tweets, post a tweet, click on links that are in the tweets…etc. I would love to see an update that keeps the lock screen on longer. For now, you can install the 20 Second Lock Screen mod via the BigBoss source. But, it would be nice if the application had a longer delay or stayed on while you were viewing tweets and then re-locked when you were finished.

Overall, a pretty sweet application for all your Twitter addicts!

You can get Twidget via the iSpazio source. Not to be confused with Twidget in the MacCiti source.

    Has anyone had any problems with this? On my lock screen, all it keeps saying is that it’s loading my Tweets, but I can never see them.

    Forget it, I got it working now.
