ReoTwé (Read-or-Tweet)

You became hooked with social media and Twitter? If you wanna change that, try this App.

The App WAS a very low level twitter client. You can use the old code to build your own cool client or to learn how Twitter Kit and API works.

You can get a signed APK from here (Android 4.1+): APK

How to get API Codes

I did not share my API Key and Secret! You have to create your own. Normally all Twitter client request go to a man in the middle app-server to analyse and cache every request (similar to a proxy). WE DO NOT WANT this man in the middle server, who holds API Key and Secret and sending Ad's or do things with our private stuff. Thus: Your client has to hold these Keys and you have to generate your own, because there are request limits to pretend the original Twitter servers from to many requests.

To get API Key and Secret you have to create a new App on the Twitter development website.
