    This morning I decided to setup a little experiment to see how long it takes for pns to work with Twitter for the im+ app both for direct messages and @replies. I did this by sending direct messages and @replies to myself through text messages. After I sent the text I immediatly switched over to the timer. For direct messages I was able to measure the difference between when the dm hit my e-mail vs when I was push notified. I ran three tests for each type of notification. The results are pretty decent.

    First, for direct messages... In the first test I recieved the e-mail in exactly 1 minute and the push notification in 3 mins 34 secs. In the second test I recieved the e-mail in 1 min 58 secs and the push notification in 4 mins 15 secs. In the final test I recieved the e-mail in 5 secs!!! And the push notification in 4 mins 7 secs.

    Now on to @replies... In the first test I recieved push notification in 1 min 24 secs. 2nd test 1 min 27 secs. And in the final test in 2 min 58 secs.

    So all in all this is good enough for me and I think will be good enough for most every Twitter user. Maybe not good enough to carry on a conversation like when chatting but almost. Anyway thought I would share! Let the Twitter volley commence. Btw my Twitter name is mattshall so if ya want to follow me feel free and send me some @s for testing or whatever.

    Yep, there's currently no method to instantly push Twitter data; the IM+ servers would be polling Twitter every couple of minutes to push changes to you.
