Due to TwitPic problems early in this week, I decided to find better way to support TwitPic in Birdnest and jibjib. In the past, Birdnest calls
uploadAndPost which posts to Twitter immediately. Anyway, problem this week introduced me some error messages.
- 1001 - Invalid twitter username or password
- 1005 - Unknown error
There were something wrong in TwitPic and I cannot fix it myself. In addition, TwitPic likes to post in below format.
http://twitpic.com/url @reply text
That means I cannot reply by TwitPic. So it would be a great idea to post it to Twitter myself in Birdnest or jibjib
In short, after improving jibjib to reduce bandwidth usage and tested in real world at Penang, this is the right time to summary some statistics.

Both offer GPRS at 0.48 baht per 1 KB. Roughly calculation returns
(100426+155471)/1024*0.48 = 119.52 baht.
I am in Penang and I just found that Replies timeline in jibjib does not support "since" parameter yet. It is a big problem for IR GPRS like me now. So I have to implement it immediately after got a room.
jibjib does not have new feature or new version for a while. That means the current beta is usable and very stable. Anyway, tomorrow I have to visit Malaysia for PRAGMA 15 6 days long. Current jibjib is not good enough anymore. IR GPRS for True Move at Malaysia is about 0.42 THB per 1 KB. I do not want to spend more than 1 THB per tweet. In addition, retweet goes mainstream. It is a new trend to buzz. That is why I optimized birdnest and jibjib.
- Added a new flag to enable bandwidth optimization. Now it suppresses
- Added retweet menu in status screen.
Please tweet me if you see any bugs.
