When connected to a Wi-Fi network, Tweetbot’s terrific streaming feature continually delivers new tweets to your timeline without the need to refresh manually. But did you know that the app contains a “Super Secret Settings” menu that allows you to activate streaming over a 2G or 3G cellular connection?

Here’s how to access it.

First, go to Tweetbot’s Settings menu and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page where you can find its copyright notice. Using both your thumbs (or fingers, but its easier with thumbs) tap three times on the bottom left and bottom right corners of the screen — either side of that copyright notice — simultaneously.

The page will flip over and you’ll be presented with the Super Secret Settings menu. Here there are a number of options you can tinker around with, but most of you will only be interested in just one, and that’s the ability to enable streaming over a cellular connection. To do this, simply turn the “WWAN Streaming” option on.

It’s as simple as that!

    It doesn’t seem to be working for me. Maybe because I’m on iOS 6?
