      Thanks for the heads up on the mobile web app for Twitter Dennis.

      My older smartphone doesn’t have many software options, so I have been suffering through Twitter’s mobile site, it never occurred to me to go looking for third party mobile sites.

      I tried them all and I think that Tweete works the best on my not-so-smartphone. I can finally easily reply to others!
