Birdsong Quick Tip: Tweet Property Icons

One of our favourite features of Birdsong is the Tweet Property Icons – they appear to the bottom right of tweets in your timeline and quickly let you know what lies within.  Here’s a quick run-down of what they look like and what they mean.

Conversation

If you see the conversation icon, it indicates that the tweet was “in reply to” someone and you’ll be able to tap through to the conversation and see every response in context.

Birdsong’s integrated picture viewer recognises and integrates with all the major picture services (twitpic, yfrog, flickr, plixi and moby).  If you see the picture icon, you’ll get a thumbnail of the picture which you can tap on to view in full screen.

We integrate with Bing Maps, so if your friends geo-tag their tweets you’ll get a thumbnail map of their location and be able to tap through to a full interactive Bing Map.

If you’ve earmarked a tweet as a favourite, you’ll see the star tweet property icon in your timeline.

Some of your friends may choose to limit who can see their tweets and protect their account – if you’re one of the special ones,  you can feel even more special with this delightful padlock icon.
