Tweetype is an interesting online game to improve typing speed just by typing the tweets of your Twitter timeline. This idea makes it unique as compared to other typing practice software. Rules of the game are very simple:
- You need to type as many tweets as you can within 2 minutes.
- If you make mistakes during typing, then it will affect your score, and typing speed.
- You can skip any tweet (using Esc key) when you find complicated wording used in that particular tweet.
- For smileys, you can just type any character and move on to continue typing.
You need to login with your Twitter account and then it will fetch tweets for typing.
In the above screenshot, you can see that you need to type the full tweet to bring the next tweet for typing. On the bottom of the screen, you can see remaining time, number of characters typed by you, and total errors. Once the time is over, it will show you the score.
You can also play this game without logging to your Twitter account. However, to use tweets of your timeline, check global leaderboard, compare scores with friends, and to post your score on your Twitter timeline, you must login with your Twitter account.
