Delen for Tweetbot Cydia Tweak: Send Images via Direct Message in Tweetbot

Twitter is a popular micro-blogging app which lets you remain in sync with what’s happening around the world. Despite being a fabulous app, it lacks quite a few user-friendly features like the option to mute tweets individually. That’s why; a lot of Twitter users go for third party Twitter clients to enhance its functionality.

Tweetbot 4, with several highly impressive features such as mute tweets by users, is one of the most appreciated third-party Twitter clients. Despite being heavily priced ($9.99), one feature that it lacks is the ability to let users send photos via Direction Message.

Delen Cydia Tweak

Direct Message is very significant as it allows users to communicate with their friends or followers easily. Personally, I use DM a lot to send message to a number of followers. On numerous occasions, I have to send photos with DM while communicating with my developer friends.

Delen for Tweetbot Cydia Tweak

For all those Tweetbot 4 users who have been waiting for the option to send photos in Direct Message, there is a new jailbreak tweak Delen for Tweetbot. The tweak allows you to send DM in an intuitive manner; as if it were a native feature of the Tweeter client.

The Intuitive Feel

Whenever I think of trying any tweak, I look at two important aspects-functionality and UI. It has scored very well on the both the aspects.

The tweak adds a camera button to the left of the text. Simply tap on the camera icon; you will get three options in the pop-up menu.

  • Send the last photo you captured on your iPhone.
  • Capture a photo to send.
  • Select an existing photo from your Camera Roll to send.

Tap on your preferred option and go ahead with the process as usual. Isn’t it like a native feature of the Tweeter client?

Bottom Line

If you are a Tweetbot 4 user and feel the need to have the option to send a photo in DM, Delen for Tweetbot is a readymade solution. As for functionality, it’s up to the task.

Since this tweak is available for free from BigBoss repo, you can quickly give it a try and let us know your feedback as well.
