     OVERVIEW
     ********

Twitter client with many features:     

 * Map view for locating tweets
 * Search for tweets within currently viewed map
 * Skinnable timeline
 * Multiple user accounts
 * Password free stored account data
 * Preview of linked images
 * Update of status (send new tweets)
 * Load list of mentions
 * Show user information and related tweets
 * Search function (user and tweets)
 * Follow / Unfollow
 * Retweet
 * Avatars by datatype
 * MUI interface
 * OAuth support
 * URLs opened in browser (via OpenURL.library)
 
twittAmiga uses libcurl, libssl and others (see license folder for 
copyright information), therefore the executable is quite large. You should 
have at least 6 MB RAM. 

The GUI should be self-explanatory for twitter users. However, here a short 
description of the buttons in the toolbar:

 * Pred: Loads the previous page of the timeline.
 * Next: Loads the next page of the timeline.
 * Reload: Reloads the current page.
 * Home: Goes to the first page of the home timeline.
 * Send: Sends a new tweet (enter text into text editor above).
 * Tweet: Searches for tweets with the string entered in the text editor above.
 * User: Searches for user containing the string entered in the text editor
above.
 * Map: Searches for tweets matching the string entered in the text editor and
that         are sent from a place on the currently viewed map. You can leave
the search         string empty to view all tweets on map.
 * Mentions: Shows tweets mentioning you.
 

 
You can retweet by clicking the double arrow icon on the left side of the tweet.
By clicking the question mark icon of a user you can see detailed informations
about him/her. You can also follow/unfollow him/her by clicking the
corresponding icon above the tweet. 

There is also a menu for MUI settings and to switch the map view on and off.

User accounts are now stored by just saving the twitter key. It is
therefore no more required to save the password anywhere and it is asked only
once to retrieve the key by twitter. This can be done for multiple users. You 
can switch between multiple accounts by clicking the corresponding menu item.
A new window will be opened with a list of saved user accounts. Click on the
desired name and close the window. The user is then switched. To delete a user
you can edit the file keys.dat that is stored in the same directiory as
twittAmiga. Just delete the line with the user to be removed. Deleting this
file will remove all users.

The configuration is done via tooltypes of the twittamiga.info. These are:

 * ACCOUNT: Your E-Mail address that you use for login. Can be empty.
            If you have multiple accounts this is the default account
            at startup.
 * TWEETS_PER_PAGE: The number of tweets that are shown on one page.
 * THEME: The name of the theme for the timeline. This is the name of a 
          directory within the twittAmiga directory. To use the default
          background type default.
 * CACHE: Path to a dir to store caching files. An / or : must be appended.
 * VIEW_MAP: YES or NO to view map on start or not.
 * MAP_SIZE_X: The width of the map image in pixel.
 * MAP_SIZE_Y: Height of the map image in pixel.


     FAQ
     ***
Question: It can't login or login fails, what can I do?
Solution: You can use your email address for login or the twitter username
          which is usually displayed with a leading  at . If you use your 
					username do not enter the  at . If you are not asked for name and
					password try to delete keys.dat which is located in the folder
					where you have stored twittAmiga.

Question: It does not start and does not show anything. What is happening?
Solution: Maybe there are missing libraries. Check the list above carefully.
          Sometimes also the MUI classes have dependencies that are not met.
          To check this, go to the settings page of this class and see if
          it works correctly.
	 
Question: twittAmiga crashes when I push any button, is there a bug?
Solution: twittAmiga uses floating point integers for calculating the
          progress bar. Maybe you need a fpu library. I suggest:
          util/sys/Mu680x0Libs.lha from Aminet. If this does not solve
          the problem please continue to the next question.
		  
Question: I have problem XYZ. How can I solve it?
Solution: Try to start twittAmiga from a shell by typing:

          stack 102400
          twittamiga debug
		  
          You will see a long log of everything what is happening. Maybe
          there are error messages that can help you.
		  
Question: Where can I get news and help?
Solution: Follow me on twitter: twittAmiga or search the web for forum
          threads.
		  	            
Question: The icons look crappy, what can I do?
Solution: Try another PNG datatype. All icons (except toolbar) and
          user images are displayed using datatypes.

Question: My window does not fit onto screen, what can I do?
Solution: You can configure the MUI for this window. Select "TheBar"
          and choose to view images only.

     BUGS

There is an issue about the libcurl. On some systems twittAmiga can be started
from a shell only a few times until it stops showing images. If this happens,
start it from workbench or restart the shell.
