Now available on Net TV: TWITTER!
This concerns Twitter version 1.0 for Net TV.
We are already working on version 2.0 with additional functionality and corrections.
When you access the Twitter App you can read the most discussed trends. The Twitter App will adapt to your country settings, so what you see is country depending. When you have a twitter account you can sign-in. Then you will see the tweets of the people you follow.
Twitter account creation is not supported via this App, it is easier to do that via your PC at twitter.com
When you have a 2009 TV some twitter message might not show correctly, this is because the font in the Twitter message is not supported by the TV (for example Chinese). 2010 TVís support more fonts.
The search function allows you to search for twitter messages on a certain topic. You cannot search for a twitter account name (that is for the 2.0 release).
URLís mentioned in tweets are not directly accessible (perhaps in the 2.0 release).
When you select the picture of the messenger and press OK, all tweets from this person are shown.
The tweet history is limited to 15 tweets.
Have a try, we are happy to read your findings and observations on this Twitter App here.
Beside criticism and corrections, we feel most encouraged with a small sign of appreciation.
At your service, the Net TV Team.
How to upgrade to future twitter apps?
When there are updates to the Twitter app, how would we upgrade the app? Would it be through the TV upgrade screen options.. or is there some other way to do this?
I ask, because currently our TV twitter app isn't functional and we just got off the phone with the guys and they said the only thing we can do is wait for an upgrade.
Our error message is:
Connection Error: NE
Our internet connect works normally with the other 2 apps ó Netflix & the radio app, and for about 30 seconds the twitter app works normally too until we get the above mentioned error.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
