Sick of the sight of that fat fail whale when Twitter's site can't handle the traffic? Not sure what Twitter client to use instead? Well, how about not even bothering with a Twitter client and simply using your email to carry out all your tweeting tasks? That's what a new service called TweetyMail offers.

Simply link up an email address to TweetyMail and then, by sending emails to, you can Tweet to your heart's content. You can also DM your contacts, retrieve tweets, re-tweet, follow people, etc. It's all pretty straight forward.

TweetyMail also gives you the option to get more detailed follower and DM updates by using a special TweetyMail address as your main Twitter email address, as illustrated below...

So get over to TweetyMail and sign up. Give it a go and let us know what you think.
