Rettiwt V0.2: FireFox Extension for Twitter Web



I have noticed a lot of users use Twitter web when they are on their machines. It's better save much time and no need to download or install any application.

I thought I could inject few more features into this already available tool. Hence I created a FireFox extension.

Being new to FF extension development and a fan of rapid development, I added only few features (will add more later):

1. Classic Retweet with Editing (RT).

2. Automatically parse YouTube videos and embed them into the status itself.
So if one of your following post a link to a YouTube video, the extension automatically fetch that video and display the frame in the status itself. You don't have to do anything.

3. Add all your following into a listbox so you can easily select and reply to them.

4. #FollowFriday Button that appears only on fridays.
