We already know that iOS 5 will bring deep Twitter integration to iDevices. So far, we’ve confirmed that iOS 5 will let you tweet pictures from the Photos app, your location from the Maps app, and a link from Safari or the YouTube application.

One thing we know it’s not doing at the moment is letting you send a tweet from anywhere, without attaching an image, your location, or a link. Well folks, it seems that Apple is working on a way to integrate Twitter even more with iOS, by letting you tweet from anywhere

While we don’t have any hard evidence confirming this information so far, we want to point you to a tweet that Jake Behrens, a developer for Apple, sent out yesterday. Do you see anything special in there?

As you can tell, the tweet was sent via “iOS” but it doesn’t include any link, location, or picture. Furthermore, the content of this message smells like a test tweet to me.

With today’s news that Cupertino might be looking into letting developers create widgets for iOS 5, I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple and Twitter were testing a new widget that would allow users to tweet from anywhere in iOS 5, just like qTweeter currently does for jailbreakers.

I predict that the Twitter integration in iOS 5 will be even deeper than we previously thought. Who’s not excited about that?

    Thats pretty interesting. Im not gonna lie only reason i started using twitter recently, is because of iOS5.

  • KiraXD

    i like qTweeter since i use it for Facebook which is more useful imo (i dont use twitter) is iOS5 twitter only?

    • KiraXD

      *is this iOS5 function* twitter only

  • Jerry

    How about Facebook? Why don’t they have this feature for that

    • Revvxz

      Cause facebook is the most pointless thing ever made.

  • MrA

    i don’t understand the fascination you kids have with tweets.

    Very cool. qTweeter, while an awesome idea, is buggy as hell and ultimately, I don’t even use it anymore. If your suspicions are correct, I’d gladly welcome tweet from anywhere in iOS5.

    Why don’t they have Facebook integration? Who knows but you’re free to email sjobs@apple.com to find out why. Personally, I’m glad Facebook isn’t integrated.

    Would love a facebook integration or a tweak that offers to change the twitter integration to facebook, just saying, lol.

    You can actually tweet without a picture location or video in the contacts section. Just go Open contacts and click anyone who has their twitter username in their contacts. Press Tweet and voila

    Facebook prolly didnt wanna sign on. And twitter seems to be more appealing for most these days. Just like facebook killed myspace twitter is killing facebook. I remember when you needed a .edu email adress for facebook.

    Facebook is private, Twitter is public. I think the two are completely different and not rivaling eachothet what-so-ever.
