Twitter is a popular social networking and microblogging service on the Web that let users send and read short text-based messages (up to 140 characters), also known as a “tweets”. We have now created an ActiveX component (Active control) that can be used to send messages (tweets) directly from desktop applications.
We have also inluded a URL shortering function in the Twitter ActiveX. The function uses the Bitly service to shorten URLs, but it is also possible to the let Twitter shorten the URLs. Both systems are supported by the Twitter component.
You can read more about the Twitter ActiveX component on this web page on our web site:

Other news: Also our desktop applications will support Twitter soon
We will also add support for Twitter in our other software. We will first add support to our e-mail marketing tool MultiMailer. You will soon be able to send tweets directly from the program. You can for example tweet about your latest newsletter that you just sent out, or currently is delivering! We will also add this functionality to Visual Installer, so you can tweet about new versions of your software directly from Visual Installer. Same function will be added to CD-Menu Creator.
More information about this new feature in our desktop applications will be coming soon.
