I'm a huge tweeter, and I'd love to give a new client a shot!

Jbbarrette says:

I don't have unlimited SMS, thus would be a great substitute for sure!

Domenik says:

I hate the DM-functions in the normal twitter clients. I need this application.

hggs says:

So far I don't like using DM's in the official Twitter app. Would love to try something new and see if it fits the bill.

Skip says:

A speedy DM app would be GREAT. As do others I feel the standard Twitter app is not that great for DM.

odabashianr says:

I'm a twitter freak. Love reading new stuff. Ability to text is awesome

It would be SOOO convenient. It's definitely a must have.

Brent Lacy says:

I am finding myself using twitter a lot lately, but the dropbox integration would be nice!
thanks for the opportunity!

mrrobinson says:

I have 36 Twitter apps and I "must" get to 37. :o)

Kale58 says:

I only keep/use the best of the best. Chirpy would fit nicely with select Twitter apps.

Kirk Greenland says:

I use twitter alot. I'm use the original application and everyone knows it can be irriating at times. I'm not too sure what other applications offer so I kinda work with the evil I know. Based on what I've read about this app, I'm willing to let my guard down and give it a shot.

Danny says:

As any Twitter addicted person, I use DMs a lot and this would be quite useful to have! :D

Dan says:

I'll give any Twitter client a try!

Barker says:

Looking at possibly using something like this at work. I Would love to give it a shot.

Pedro says:

With my girlfriend we use to communicate via Direct Messages, cause that's an economic solution. I think this is the app I've been searching for.
I will be glad to have one of these promo codes.
Thank you.

RevJar says:

Love Twitter. Good clients are hard to come by.

mtmjr90 says:

I've been using the official Twitter app, but the DM functionality isn't very pretty. I'd love to try this out!

Andres says:

I want this! My gf doesn't have unlimited txt but she does have unlimited Internet. Help make our communication and relationship better  thank you TiPB
The official twitter app doesn't notify properly and it lags a lot

Jovine says:

This would be perfect because it allows multiple accounts. down right amazing for people who have a personal account and a business related account. Notifications are fast, with sounds and it makes direct messages more intuitive and it is alot similar to the texting format everybody is use to. I love, love twitter and this just seems down right perfect.

Justin Rhoades says:

I currently manage social networks for three accounts and would love to be able to more easily keep track of messages. It'd be a great help!

Darthur says:

I can't tell you how many times I'm on Twitter each day. This would make my Tweet-life SO much easier, and more fun, too!

djayme7 says:

tried many, would love to try this one too!

Traveling_2 says:

I am always looking for news to streamline the Twitter experience. It would be great really leverage DM in a simple and elegant way. Would love to give this a whirl.

sethsnack says:

This looks like exactly what I have been looking for... I use Twitter as a sort of BBM for my friends who prefer to tweet over text. This simplifies the whole experience, it seems. Impressive!
