If you are a active user of Twitter and your favorite startpage is iGoogle, you already know that there are some options for you to have Twiter integration into it. but lets face it. some suck and the rest are not cool or good enough to be considered usable without cringing a little.
That is not the case of Betwittered. This Twitter iGoogle Gadged developed by Meta_Robert from 32hrs.com is pretty much a miniaturized version of your Twitter Web Page and that is a good thing. so you can update Twitter while still looking at something pleasant.
It is notable to add that the Gadget is under continuous development so it may get to a point where it has all the web client features..right now it just have all the ones you need.
You can see a screenshot of it here in its actual size so you get a hang of it. i am now a user of it. i find truly the best twitter iGoogle Gadget so far.
You can get further information or do feature request at the developer page too if you want.
