I have been working on this for over a week and glad to finally have this released. More information and updates will be found at the macthemes thread.

So, what is this?
This is a widget for use with WinterBoard that gives you a Twitter widget on the iPhone lockscreen from where you can watch recent tweets.

You cant install the widget with this only. You will need some additional files and you can find a detailed instructions at the macthemes thread.

--------------------------------

Credits:

Chad Etzel - This guy has been a great help for me. I had troubles getting the javascript to work as it should and this guy is truly the javascript guy. I have him to thank for getting the structure as I want it to be and having a perfectly working widget.

Yanik Magnan "aka" Sakurina - Yanik helped me with how to authenticate yourself in the widget so that the tweets can be fetched without any strange workarounds.

TURN - TURN, my friend has been a great help. He made wallpapers and he has also been a beta tester and has been looking at my previews and commenting on the design. He also helped me making the preview and gave me inspiration for the slider skin. Thanks a bunch man! :thumbsup:

iKon - Kon was also one of the beta testers.

Saleh - Thanks for testing this on your phone when mine was broken, much appreciated mate!

The Twitter API team - For making a great "Rest API" documentation!

DryIcons Designers - Thanks for making and sharing the twitter bird used in the widget header.

Shouts a special big thanks to :iconturnpaper:!!

Enjoy!

So i guess it stopped working on 3.x.x.

It's a shame, cause it was really neat!

I have a version for 3.x which I could post whenever I would want to, however I want to solve some basic parsing errors before I do ;)
I'll keep you posted!

Cool stuff dude - Does it only work for Tiwtter or can it be used to - lets say - be an email reader, or an RSS feed?
