So most of us bought our DS for playing games on, but you can't deny that if access to your social networking site of choice was easily available too you wouldn't use it.

Which is why the news – delivered by pmptoday – that one homebrew expert has managed to get micro-blogger and social networking site Twitter running on DS should be welcome news to some ears.

The DSTwitter application, developed by Jorge S, currently only runs in Spanish, which could slightly hinder the majority of our readers. But the software is on version 1.2 now and hopefully future versions will support English, too.

The important thing is that it's working so surely it can only be a matter of time before it can be brought to the masses. Then we can all be tweeting away in between bouts of Race Driver: GRID. Brilliant.
