Use 3G Unrestrictor to enable streaming over cellular in Tweetbot

Tweetbot STreaming Cellular

Tweetbot, my favorite Twitter client by a country mile, takes well advantage of Twitter’s streaming API for instant timeline updates with no manual refresh. It works very well, but unfortunately Tweetbot requires you to be connected to Wi-Fi in order to use the feature. What to do now? Fake a Wi-Fi connection, of course!

3G Unrestrictor has many uses, and one such use is to enable Twitter streaming in Tweetbot over a cellular connection. Check out our brief video inside.
