    Ok, So I downloaded the official twitter app for android( I have the Dinc).

    However, I have no clue on how to get twitter updates sent to my phone immediately.

    Like occasionally I would get a notification that i have an x number of recent tweets, but its not immediate.

    Now I know I can do it the old fashioned via text message..but I want to avoid that because its a smartphone and im assuming theres a way for it to be instant.


    Thanks.

    The closest to this you can have is for it to check every 5 minutes. Open the twitter app, press menu, go to refresh interval and change it to 5 minutes. To have it be instant would require a push server.

    Try Tweetcaster.

    I just started using the free one and it supports more than one account and i have two so this is a biggy for me.
    Works great for my Vibrant and gives me immediate notifications at the top of my phone plus you can get vibration and/ or a sound or LED flash if you have it as well.

    They have a Pro version which doesnt show banner ads, but the ads are very small on the bottom of the screen. Dont bother me. I just read the tweets.

    The regular twitter app blows.
