TweetMyPC is developed in Developers free time. Help us keep the project running :)
TweetMyPC is a little software-application for Windows, written in VB.Net using the .Net-Framework v3.5 SP1, which allows you to control and access your computer from anywhere by simply sending a twitter-message with a special command as its content.
Most time when you want to connect two personal computers you need a Server between them to get access and forward the wanted data because firewalls often block direct connections and most people don't have internet-connections with static IPs. For example
if you use Skype or another instant messenger, your client connects to a server which 'manages' all the data-transferring and tells the clients the addresses of the other computers. But why should you develop a complete-Server-Client-system just for
sending a few short messages to your computer, if there are simple systems like Twitter? This service gives users a really easy and fast way of communication. Twitter already is a stable system for which there are many libraries software-developers can easily
use to connect with their programs to twitter. Another advantage of twitter is that the users can even send messages called "tweets" using your mobile phones independent from where they are! And exactly this is what we need for TweetMyPC!
Many people now think why they should use TweetMyPC if there are things like Remote Desktop or vnc; but as already said before, you still need the IP-Address and often an open port for being able to use these technologies - this is not needed with TweetMyPC
and it also would be more work to do.
