Birdhouse: iPhone App to Improve Your Twitter Posts
Article by George Norman
On 14 Apr 2009
Birdhouse is an iPhone app that is not meant to replace your favorite iPhone Twitter client, it is an app that is designed to seamlessly work together with that client and enhance your overall Twitter experience - which some users are complaining about following this weekend’s worm attack (complaints refer to the fact that some of their tweets have been deleted, which was nothing but a reactionary measure on Twitter’s side).

What Birdhouse, or “A Notepad for Twitter” as its developers have dubbed it does is switch focus from the option of reading and replying to tweets and onto composing them. When you get an idea in your head, don’t just rush to post in on Twitter – instead write it down in Birdhouse, come back to it later and refine it, and hit the publish button only when you are certain your tweet is precisely as you want it to be. According to the apps developers, Adam "LonelySandwich" Lisagor and Cameron “cameron.io” Hunt, the goal is to encourage Twitter users to raise the bar on the quality and refinement of their tweets.

Here are the main features you can expect to get from Birdhouse:
- Similar to Notes in that it lets you quickly write down ideas. Save as many drafts as you want.
- Countdown to 140 characters, just like you get in Twitter.
- Support for multiple Twitter accounts.
- Support for Airplane mode, meaning that you can always jot down your ideas offline.
- Draft rating system.
- Filter drafts according to the time you wrote them or according to the rating you gave them.
- Un-publish bad tweets.
- Email backup support.

If you would like to get Birdhouse, an iTunes download location is available here.
