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 HTC’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
