Tweet - A simple Twitter desktop client

Tweet is a desktop client for the Twitter web service. The Twitter web service is described as:

    Twitter is for staying in touch and keeping up with friends no matter
    where you are or what you’re doing. For some friends you might want
    instant mobile updates - for others, you can just check the web. Invite
    your friends to Twitter and decide how connected you want you to be.
    -- from http://twitter.com

In short, is a web-based SMS-like service.

Tweet is a client written to read your friends' status and update your own without using a web browser.
