Update your twitter by just shaking your Chumby device.
Configure the Chumby to have a Twitter message for each orientation. You will have three options on shake and one each on east, west, and south orientations. When you move your Chumby and then confirm by pressing the OK , your twitter status will be updated to the messages shown screen. You can also do a custom update by shaking the chumby and pressing "custom update."
While you are not doing anything with the chumby, your latest tweets are displayed (the widget fetches new tweets every 3 minutes.)
Hope you find it useful.Do leave feedback!

    Hmmm, I guess this is not "infocast" compatible? It doesn't appear on my infocast even though added.

    I sure like the idea of this widget, but it isn't doing anything. It gets my new messages assigned to each "action", but once I actually DO them, I get nothing on a Twitter account that is following.

    Great work! For this widget, I checked out Twitter, its nice! I also saw that you continously update the widget - now there is also a keyboard for arbitrary messages, cool! Maybe you can fix the position of the keys of the keyboard... I have my chumbys touchscreen calibrataed but still the keys are off a bit.
