Twitter gets a mobile-friendly Web site

30boxes has hacked together a nice WAP browser for Twitter feeds.

Tip from Scoble's Twitter: Twapper, from the 30boxes team. It's the app I was wishing I had earlier today: A mobile Web site that monitors Twitter feeds.

Why? Because Twitter's default mobile channel is SMS, and SMS is a rotten medium for reading a constant feed of trivial posts from a ton of people, which is what you get with Twitter. First of all, no one wants their phone buzzing every five seconds, and second, a lot of people have to pay for each SMS. Until now, I've been using Twitter's Web site on my smartphone to keep up to date, but a full-sized Web site is not a good match for a small device. The Twapper WAP site makes it much easier to monitor Twitterers you care about.

Still no way to post a Twitter from Twapper, but give it a few days...
