I was looking for a windows tool to update my status on twitter, but I couldn't really find anything that I was looking for. Most of them looked like some sort of IM client when what I really wanted was a input line, and nothing else (much like the Launchy interface). As the programmer I am, I wasted four hours in implementation of what I needed, and the result was Twitty.
Release of 0.3 (don't ask what happened with 0.2). Now there is a login window where you can supply your Twitter information, and this information is now stored in a file called
configuration.txt in the running directory of the application. The password in this file is not encrypted or anything, so beware what password you put in there. I use some nonsense password for crap logins like Twitter and other communities, and I encourage you to do the same. Oh yeah! I changed the keyboard shortcut to CTRL+SHIFT+SPACE since a lot of applications already use CTRL+SPACE.

Do what you want with the program, but don't distribute it as if you wrote it and don't change the colours. Big thanks goes out to Twitteroo, since I ripped their service communication library.
