Atlanta, Georgia – TwitChat, a social networking app for Twitter, launched both free and paid iPhone versions this week in the App Store. The innovative app is a revolution in the mobile Twitter experience. For the first time, Twitter users can privately and instantly message, group chat, and send pictures to their followers – all with no character limits.
Twitter is an incredible social media tool, and we wanted to make it even better, said Marcus Thomas, TwitChat CEO. TwitChat allows you to instant message other Twitter users, adding a new and fun way to communicate on the already popular social network.
TwitChats main features include:
Instant Messaging: Chat with a close friend, have a group conversation with your family, even connect with a follower you don’t know. You can even bring your conversations to life with pictures and emoticons.
Exclusivity: Send friend requests to build your TwitChat friends list. You have complete control over how many (or few) of your followers can message you. This is perfect for people with a lot of followers!
Feed: View your Twitter timeline, or a more exclusive timeline of just your TwitChat friends. Check your mentions, or even start a conversation directly from a tweet that catches your eye!
Twitter Client: Enjoy the full Twitter experience in the palm of your hand. Tweet, retweet, reply, view profiles, and much more!

Founded in 2011, TwitChat was originally the idea of three students at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and winners of the 2011 Undergraduate Georgia Tech Business Plan Competition. As a 3rd party instant messaging application, TwitChat expands the functionality of Twitter beyond its ingenious design that already boasts 400 million users. In addition to using your already established Twitter profile to interact with people publicly (through tweets), you will now be able to communicate through Twitter instantly and privately, and in small groups.
