Teach Siri to Read Your Twitter Timeline

There is a new Cydia tweak that teaches Siri to display the last five tweets from your Twitter timeline. I haven't quite figured out why it's needed, but a few improvements may make it a more useful tool in the future.

The tweak is called TweetLine, and it can be located in the ModMyi repo under "Sources" in the Cydia Store. Once installed just say the word "Timeline" to prompt Siri to access your Twitter account. She will then show you the last five tweets from your timeline. You will also need the free Twitter app from the iTunes App Store for it to work.

Best New Siri Jailbreak Tweaks: Assistant Extensions and Custom Siri Background

If you've used pod2g's exploit to jailbreak your iPhone 4S you can now take advantage of the many Siri tweaks available through Cydia. There is CustomSiriBackground, which allows you to wallpaper Siri with any photo from your Camera Roll, and Sireet, which gives Siri the ability to send tweets. But the best Siri tweak of all has to be AssistantExtensions.

AssistantExtensions turns Siri into the voice assistant we've all been waiting for. It allows Siri to search YouTube videos and launch apps, but best of all it can make her hold intimate conversations with you. Saying the phrase "Lets Chat" activates the Siri chat mode. After a short wait for her to load some textual data, Siri will tell jokes and give you information without having to connect to the web. For example, asking her "what is Apple" will result in her giving you three definitions, the third being "Empire for Steve Jobs." AssistantExtensions opens a whole new world of possibilities for Siri, and it even allows you to have custom conversations if you take the time to create them.
