How To: Roll Your Own Twitter Push Notification App

Ars Technica's iPhone wonder woman, Erica Sadun, has put together what must be the first expert level how-to: Pushing tweets to your iPhone with Apple Push notifications

Ars shows you how to create a Push-based Twitter update notification system for the iPhone without actually showing you any of the details due to the ongoing NDA. (But don't worry, we tell you exactly where to find the instructions.)

Nin. Ja.

Ready? Set? Push Tweet!
