Right now the twitter feed in events allows me to open Twitter in the browser. This made sense when there was no native twitter app. OTOH Tweetian in progressing very nicely! It would be great to allow users to select their twitter app so that the event feed would link to whaever the user has selected in settings. Default can be browser like now.

Also, links could be added for individual tweets and Twitter users - not just a generic link to Twitter.

(This same thing applies to FB and G+, but AFAIK Twitter is the only service that has a beta native client that could use the linking feature.)

Tweetian is not native app and has alot of issues too. But I agree better tweetian or even better customable using openurl("twitter://url) openurl("facebook:/") API that would invoke prefered Xxx client for user.
