What is XTwin?

XTwin A mobile web interface to Twitter's API. It has been put up by @aalaap and is based on Dabr, an open source project by @davidcarrington with inspirations from @whatleydude.

Currently, XTwin is running Dabr r408, which was released on May 30th, 2011.

Why should I use XTwin instead of Dabr?

Most people will use it because even Dabr (in addition to Twitter itself) is blocked at work, but I think a lot of people prefer XTwin because it has better themes.

How safe is XTwin?

XTWin is very secure - your Twitter login details are stored in an encrypted cookie on your machine, and never stored on the website, unless you decide to use that feature.

What does the name XTwin mean?

Honestly, nothing. I just wanted a short domain (3 letters + a two letter TLD), so I started looking for names starting with "tw". Pretty much every combination starting from "tw" was taken, so I just added an X before it and stuck with it.

I wanted a short domain because I wanted to integrate a URL shortener with, but I got too lazy and never made that. Maybe sometime in the future...
