twiPing Home Page

Check out this great twitter utility which helps you manage your twitter contacts, increase your twitter following, and provide bunch of other useful features.

Developing A Twitter Application

Jeremy D. Mullin created twiPing using 3 core technologies:

  • JSON.NET to handle Twitter's RESTful API
  • DevExpress WinForms Controls: XtraGrid, XtraBars and XtraEditors
  • Advantage Local Server database engine from Sybase

Unsure of which WinForms controls to use, Jeremy asked other developers for recommendations:

"After a quick post to Twitter asking what components WinForms developers were using, there were plenty of votes for DevExpress so I made the purchase." – Jeremy D. Mullin

Using DevExpress tools, the application took little time to create:

"I was also REALLY impressed with how similar the grid control is to the original Delphi version of the DevExpress grid. The properties and layout are almost exactly the same, which put a big dent in my learning curve and instantly made me more productive." – Jeremy D. Mullin

I've tested several Twitter apps for productivity and so far twiPing is the only one that provides me a simple, effective and even enjoyable tool to target and manage my audience. Jeremy Mullin's twiPing is today an application that serious networkers on Twitter formally only dreamed of having. Fine job Jeremy - and to all responsible, thanks!
