Better Mobile Twitter
Better Mobile Twitter
Just released the version 5 of Better Mobile Twitter greasemonkey script. You can install in http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/35396. There version adds image preview and auto expand short URL.

I prefer to use the mobile web version of Twitter because it is faster. Better Mobile Twitter is to enhance the user experience in Twitter's mobile version, with the following features:
  • Automatically load next page when scrolling to bottom of the page (continues browsing similar to Google Reader)
  • Display replies and direct messages in sidebar (New)
  • Images and Youtube thumbnail preview (supports twitpic, flickr, YouTube, hellotxt, ping.fm, TwinkleShots) (New)
  • Auto expand short URL (supports Tinyurl, bit.ly, Friendfeed, hellotxt, is.gd, Ping.fm, short.to, SnipURL, Tweetburner, tr.im) (New)
  • Add reply button like standard version (New)
  • Count the characters remaining as you typing
  • Check for new tweets in background and display number of new tweets in title bar
  • Wider input box
  • Add a user filter
  • An on/off button so you can turn off the auto-next-page function to access the links in the bottom of the page
Firefox users can first install the Greasemonkey add-on, install the script from http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/35396, then point your browser to http://m.twitter.com/home.

Chrome users please read this document to enable user scripts.

You can take a look on my other greasemonkey scripts in my user page in userscripts.org.
