ATLANTA, May 31, 2012 -- /PRNewswire/ --Â 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."
TwitChat's 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!
About: 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 over 500 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.Â Â Â

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com
Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. ( See our full terms of service here. )
Here are some rules of the road:
Â Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Â Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Â Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Â Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Â Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Â Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Â Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Â Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Â Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "Report Abuse" link to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.
If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them.
