Twitter Mobile – It’s the Little Things

Just set up Twitter to work with my mobile. And this just exemplifies the thought and smartness that have gone into the application.

And what’s so good about it? The code that you have to text in, is all made up of letters that are on the first keypress of your mobile phone. So instead of having to click your 2 button 3 times to get to letter C. They’ve made sure that they don’t use the letter C.

I’m guessing that a lot of people won’t spot it. But that’s why I love it so much. They’ve thought about it and just done it. Saving people time and effort with a tiny little touch.

Twitter developers I salute you.

  1. I noticed about halfway through entering the code, and felt a rush of gratitude that someone at Twitter thought about this moment, and how they could make it easier for me. Bless ’em.

  2. I LOVE Twitter, but when I was trying to explain how brilliant I thought it was to someone at my agency they just looked at me as though I was mad and said that it just sounded like an opportunity to encourage stalkers. The fact that I can Twitter from my mobile is one of the things that I like the best
    PS. Loved your thoughts on UCG!!
