The announcement of the iPhone 4S caught everyone by surprise as the whole world had been expecting the launching of a completely new model – the iPhone 5. Despite the disappointment in not seeing the much awaited iPhone 5 unveiled early this month, almost everyone quickly shed their frowns as the cool features of the iPhone 4S were unveiled one at a time.
One of the great things about the iPhone 4S is that it totes the much praised iOS5, which boasts a lot of great features including the one we are concerned about today – Twitter integration. With Twitter integrated on the iPhone 4S (or any other iPhone you use when you eventually upgrade your phone’s OS to the iOS5), the convenience of tweeting is taken to greater heights as you only need sign in on your phone once (done under settings) and freely tweet “directly from Safari, Photos, Camera, YouTube, and Maps”. Typing in your contact name is also really fast since iOS5 can autocomplete it for you – saving you a few taps, which we all appreciate much being the lazy creatures we are.
Unfortunately, even if the iPhone4S boasts of Twitter integration due to the iOS5’s capability, it did not integrate Twitter use with one of its very crucial features – Siri. With Siri capturing everyone’s fancy, it seems that sending a text message and asking endless inane questions are not enough; Siri just has to be able to send tweets and even read them aloud as well. The good thing is that even if Apple overlooked integrating Twitter with Siri, Mashable’s Charlie White quickly found a workaround for the “problem” that actually works. So if you too don’t want to type your Tweets on your iPhone 4S, find out how to teach Siri to tweet here.
