Enhance experience on twitter.com with CSS3 animations Web Browsers
How do you enjoy tweeting on Mac OS X? Do you feel better when actually using an iPhone Twitter client such as the iPhone's Tweetie and others? In my expeirence, most Mac OS X clients don't provide the rich set of information available from twitter.com. So I wrote an experimental bit of code that works on twitter.com.

pbtweet is small javascriptlet (bookmarklet) that relies on GreaseKit and shows conversation chains and images sent from twitpic.com and brightkite.com as cool icon badges on twitter.com. All animation effects and interactive motions are based on WebKit's early implementation of CSS3 transitions. Thus, pbtweet works only Safari, and I recommend Safari 4. Here are some of pbtweet's features:
  • Shows conversation chain balloons based on in_reply_to_status_id
  • Removes redundant tweets
  • Picture posts to twitPic.com and brightkite.com are placed on twitter.com as picture badges
  • Inserts a [more] page when you scroll down to page bottom
  • In the dev version only, new tweets are automatically updated at the top of timeline
Go to this URL, and drag the pbtweet bookmarklet onto your bookmark bar. (If you're using Safari 4, I recommend using the dev version). Then click the bookmarklet while viewing twitter.com.

[robg adds: The submitter's native language isn't English, so I've edited the submission quite a bit; I apologize if I got anything wrong while editing. From reading the linked page, I think you'll also need to install GreaseKit, as well as a user.js file (on the linked page) for use with GreaseKit. In case it's not obvious, I haven't tested this one.]

If you want to use an iPhone-like interface on your desktop and don't have the dev kit and simulator installed, check out Fluid.app

Thanks for fixing my submit note.
It isn't necessary to install SIMBL and GreaseKit for test.
Simply bookmarklet version works on your Safari. Drag pbtweet bookmarklet and click when you are in twitter.com.

Enjoy it.
