Q: Why can't I create a Twitter account with Poker Tweeter?

A: You must already have at least one Twitter account before you can use Poker Tweeter.
At the moment, you can't create Twitter accounts through Poker Tweeter. You can only authorize it
to use your existing Twitter accounts.

you can launch Poker Tweeter and authorize it by typing your Twitter account name and password.

You can authorize Poker Tweeter to use multiple accounts, and you can switch between them with one tap.

Q: Where are all of my Direct Messages?

A: No third-party Twitter apps can access Direct Messages any more. Twitter turned off that feature in June.
Your Direct Messages are all still there, but Poker Tweeter can't see them. :-(

You can still send Direct Messages to any user who follows you. Just tap on any user's tweet, and tap the
"profile" button on the toolbar that appears under that tweet. If that user is following you, you will see a
"Message" button on their profile. Tap that button to send the user a Direct Message.

Q: How do I follow someone?

A: It's easy to follow anyone on Twitter. Tap on one of their tweets and the action toolbar pops up under
that tweet. Tap the "profile" button and you'll see their user profile page. If you aren't already
following them, you'll see the "Follow" button in the lower left. Tap it to follow that user.

Q: The word "as" keeps getting converted to "A♠" !!!

A: Sorry about that. It's nearly impossible to tell whether the two letters "as" are the word "as"
or the ace of spades as you type them. If you meant to type the word, and not the card, just backspace
over the "A♠" and type "as" again. Poker Tweeter remembers that you typed "as" and didn't like the conversion,
so this time it won't convert to the ace of spades.

If you change your mind and really do want "A♠" in that spot, just backspace over the "as" and type the 'a' followed
by 's' again. Poker Tweeter will remember that it didn't convert to the the ace of spades and will convert this time.

Think of backspacing over the word "as" and the card "A♠" as toggling the conversion and off.

Q: Why don't the hole card win odds add up to 100%?

A: Sometimes there is the possibility of a tie. For example, if two players with pocket aces get it all in,
they each have exactly the same chance of winning preflop. One of them will put a beat on the other roughly
2% of the time. Otherwise, you can expect a tie.

Q: The win odds are slightly off sometimes. Why?

A: The iPhone isn't nearly as powerful as a modern Mac, so we had to make some compromises on the accuracy
of the win odd calculations. Precise odds would have taken way too long. Poker Tweeter's odds are fairly accurate,
but because Poker Tweeter actually simulates thousands of hands to arrive at its win odds, there is always the
chance of random variance throwing the results off slightly.

Also, we felt that the extra characters used up by precise odds wouldn't be worth the extra characters. Each tweet is
limited to 140 characters, and the characters used for each decimal point and tenths or hundredths would be
too high a price to pay.

We even shorten "100%" and "0%" to "✓" and "✗" to save characters.
