Albuquerque, NM., November 19th 2009 - Twitter.com today turned on Geotagging of Tweets and automatic ReTweeting and Stone Design's top-selling iPhone Twitter client Twittelator Pro currently shipping version 3.3.1 is the first iPhone Twitter client to take full advantage of both features.
Geotagging allows users to optionally attach a latitude and longitude to each tweet - and in Twittelator, you can tap the tweet to see a map of where it originated or use the Nearby search to find tweeters near you or any location on the planet. You can toggle the geotagging on or off at tweet time.
Twitter's new ReTweet feature was also 100% deployed today, and Twittelator lets you create these new "official" ReTweets, as well as monitor ReTweet's of yours that are ReTweeted, and see the ones that you ReTweet or are ReTweeted to you.
“We were insane to ship Twittelator V3.3.1 with untested, undeployed features.” said Stone Design CEO Andrew Stone, @twittelator. “but it's insanely great that you can Geotag and auto ReTweet today with our shipping version right now!”
With so many other power features including multiple accounts, lists, record audio, shoot video, unlimited drafts, offline tweeting, Twittelator Pro packs the most features into a Twitter client, mobile or desktop.
“There are two major factors which set Twittelator apart from the rest of the pack,” remarked Mr. Stone. “We do a free major monthly update and we listen carefully to and act on our customers' issues and feature requests.”
Twittelator Pro was chosen as Editor’s pick for best iPhone Twitter client by Mac|Life in May 2009 issue.
