PyTweeter lets you post status updates to twitter. That's pretty much it for now.

For some reason, the Twitter web interface became flaky after a major outage a few weeks ago. Ever since then, I often experience the web-based status update form just hang instead of actually posting the update. (It seems I'm not alone.)

When that happens, I use PyTweeter, an absolute bare-bones desktop application for posting status updates. It's written in Python and based on TKinter, so it should be cross-platform (at least, it works on Window XP and Ubuntu Jaunty).

You can download the latest version from the Github repository.

It depends on the python-twitter module, so you should install that as well.
