Receive tab, for example, you can configure by Twinbox incoming Twitter messages in any folder, and assign color categories to new messages. If you are a heavy Twitter user, you may want to check for new messages Twinbox every few minutes - the shortest interval available - or once per hour if you are an occasional user. You can also use automatic URL shortening Twinbox with TinyURL, but we would be happy if the service bit.ly instead.
