If you haven’t heard about it yet, Jott is a sweet voice-to-text client available from You sign up with an e-mail address and it allows you leave a message with Jott that is transcribed into an e-mail and sent to your account.

I use Jott while in the car, while walking down the street, and whenever I need to take a quick note about something but don’t have paper or a computer handy.

But now, I can Jott to Twitter! While the possibilities are endless for its uses, I’ve listed five.

1. Let your followers know where you are while on the go or inbetween appointments (and receive Tweets afterwards).
2. Twitter across the room with speakerphone!
3. Look even more insane while using Bluetooth!
4. Tweet about how exhausted you are while completing a 5K run!
5. Save your thumbs from excessive heat build-up!

I made some sample Jitter posts at


In this test post, Jott correctly transcribed “Cyborg Anthropology” but not “Donna Haraway” (it wrote Donna Haroway) or ‘interaction’ (it wrote interruction) which are both very recognizable and excusable.
