Send your tweets even when Twitter is down, with Twiddict

Web 2.0, Websites

Ever feel like your blood pressure is through the roof on those frequent occasions when Twitter is down and you just have to update about something important? Like ‘I just had a cup of tea and am reading my RSS Feeds now’. Personally, I feel like I’m going to have a cardiac arrest if I don’t update that very second.

Thankfully a new Twitter client has launched today, just in time for Apple’s WWDC event where Twitter will undoubtedly go down. Twiddict is an easy way to update, but sadly doesn’t display your friends’ tweets – for that, you may need FriendFeed. It pings the Twitter API to check whether it’s up, and if it’s one of those days where the IT guys are taking a holiday, it puts your update into a queue and sends it when Twitter is back online.
