Twidget is a new application available in Cydia that will display your Twitter stream on your iPhone lockscreen.

To install Twidget, simply go to Cydia and search for “Twidget“. There are several versions available. I installed the simple version hosted on iSpazio.

After installing Twidget, launch the app and enter your Twitter credentials then go to WinterBoard to activate the widget.

WinterBoard will automatically respring your springboard and you should now see you Twitter stream.

From the lockscreen, you’ll be able to see your friends’ tweets, your own, your @replies and your favorites.

I installed this app just to test it and I uninstalled it right away because I suspect it to be a battery killer. I might be wrong though, so feel free to correct me if that’s the case.

Still, I think it’s a great application for all Twitter addicts out there.

What do you think of this widget?

    What widget are you using to get the Mail/Twitter/RSS/etc. icons on your Lockscreen? Or does Twidget add those?

    @T-Will: Looks like twidget does not, but this question that im interested in too…i hate thoss beeps coming out from my phone, and i dont know what is that. An SMS, E-mail, or a missed call, or a ‘uckin application that still make my battery’s life harder. I know only about status notifier, which is doesnt work on 3.x and on newer firms too. So, an application like this would be good. Okay, i lied or what. There is IntelliScrenn, but i hate it too. Cause is dont need anything but “but you have a new message” or “you have a new mail”, IntelliScrenn is too smart, displays too much information, we can say it’s too Intelligent. But cant understand i dont need those “expanded” infos, damn, i just need an icon or smt.

  • There are 4 Twidget in CYdia. 2 are themes and 1 is a utility. Use the utility.
