The last update when the tweets functionality was implemented, it was able to post a regular tweet from the loklak webclient application. The tweets functionality has undergone massive changes and multiple code refactor so that there are more features along with the usual features implemented by Twitter, them being
- The ability to post a map as an attachment to the tweet.
- The ability to post large text attachment 0r markdown to twitter.
Once the user is loggedin, the user can click on the tweet functionality where he’d be provided with a lot of options, post a regular tweet, a tweet with an attached image, a tweet with map attachment or a tweet with markdown.
Ability to compose new tweets with map attachments
Ability to write markdown code as attachment to the tweets.
Live view of the markdown text rendered on the screen so that the user can see the large text content he/she is attaching as markdown text to twitter.
The use can also post their location via loklak to twitter similar to how twitter uses the geolocation service, the navigator request takes the coordinates and reverse looks up the database so that the location name and the nearby areas can be retrieved.

All the tweets that are posted over here are cross posted to loklak to make it easier for the server to harvest the tweets, We’ve moved to loklak.net from test.loklak.net after a lot of testing to make sure that the application performs well under heavy load. We have collected more than 42 million tweets so far on the main server.
