HTC claimed, ironically via Twitter, that their HTC Peep client should now be working, after apparently coming to an agreement with Twitter not to shut down their un-updated client.
This fixed everything pretty much for HTC Peep Android users, but apparently leaves HTCâ€™s Windows Mobile users with a pretty broken client, able to send tweets but unable receive them.
Given that both HTC and Microsoft have pretty much given up on Windows Mobile, we have to look at 3rd party software, and 2 clients, already updated to support OAuth, come to mind.
Pocketwit is a free client with a pretty long list of features:
The software sports:
- A unique user interface
- Works on VGA, QVGA and SmartPhone devices
- Support for multiple twitter and identi.ca accounts
- User groups to help manage your friends updates
- "Conversation View" shows a what this status was in reply to.
- Uses standard notifications to alert you of new friends statuses or replies
- Keeps an addressbook to easily add usernames to posts.
- URL shortening with is.gd
- Integration with shorttext.com for tweets longer than 140 characters
- Take photos and send to TwitPic, mobypicture, pikchur, twitgoo, or yfrog
- Preview images from those services without a browser.
- Integrated search.twitter.com
- Quote (re-tweet) or email a status
- Clickable @names, URLs, and #Hashtags
- Option to check for new version on startup
- Implemented OAuth for Twitter
For a commercial solution Panoramic MoTweets is only $3.99 and offers:
- Support for multiple Twitter accounts
- Ability to upload pictures or videos using your deviceâ€™s camera or from the photo album
- Post your location manually or by using your device GPS
- Tiny URL, bit.ly, twitpic.com, twipl.net, and yfrog.net Support

Is there any other (working) twitter clients for Windows Mobile which should be joining the list? Let us know below.
