Keyboard Shortcuts for Twitter - The Happy Android

Tired of hearing the annoying click of the mouse constantly when browsing? Twitter? How much more comfortable would it be to press a single key without having to scroll through menus and buttons all the time? Like most desktop applications, Twitter also has a bunch of keyboard shortcuts that allow you to perform the same actions what would you do with the mouse performing a simple key combination.

At first it can be a bit boring having to remember what the combination was to perform this action or the other, but as soon as you start memorizing some of these shortcuts, your visits to this social network will become a real bed of roses. Guaranteed!
