iOS 5’s Twitter integration is nice and everything, but it’s not without its shortcomings.

The biggest shortcoming for Twitter integration in iOS, is the inability to send a tweet from anywhere; without an attachment.

As it stands now, you have to perform an action such as sending a picture, in order to send out a tweet in iOS. No longer…

TwitterTask is configured to open a new tweet anytime you open up the multitask window with a double press of the home button.

It’s currently in beta, but I’d imagine that the developer would throw in some Activator options to allow you to open the tweet window using more varied methods.

Regardless, TwitterTask looks to be an essential jailbreak tweak once iOS 5 is officially released. According to developer, Qwertyoruiop, TwitterTask is scheduled to drop shortly after iOS 5 is publicly released.

I’m wholeheartedly looking forward to the ability to tweet from anywhere, and with no attachments at that. What about you?

Note: Looks like Activator now includes a native tweet option as well, so that sort of nullifies the usefulness of TwitterTask. Thanks to Nagy Konstantin for pointing this out in the comments. iDB readers rock.

    I prefer Tweetbot, according to the latest upgrade:

    -Support for iOS 5 including system level Twitter integration

    Hopefully is something like qtweeter. Dont get me wrong, qtweeter is cool but i had some major issues which had to uninstall right away.
