Tweetie 1.1

Speaking of Tweetie, version 1.1 is out. It now supports a custom ‘tweetie:’ URL scheme:

If you’re in Safari and want to post a link, just tap on the URL field and type the text “tweetie:” (without the quotes) before the URL. So for example if you’re at, change it to tweetie: When you hit “Go”, Tweetie will launch, automatically shrink the link using and bring up a new compose view so you can type a message and post it to Twitter.

There are instructions for creating a bookmarklet to automate this here, but it’s a lot easier to just create the bookmarklet in Safari on your Mac and then sync it to your iPhone.
