One of my clients wants his employees to be able to use twitter, but there were some strict requirements involved, and I couldn’t find a twitter client for windows that met all of those requirements, so I decided to write my own twitter client.

I’m modeling it after Tweetie for OSX of course (in look and function). I know ruby best, so I decided to use _why’s Shoes and John Nunemakers twitter gem.

For those interested in writing a twitter client and using shoes, or like to see the evolution of an app, be sure to check out this article.

This article is going to be updated as I write this app, but I just wanted to start with a slideshow of the evolution of the app so far.
