The popular social networking and micro-blogging service, Twitter has been made available on Nintendo DS, thanks to a new homebrew application.

Thanks to a Spaniard named "Jorge S", you can now waste your time away from your PC in the comfort of your lap by installing the application onto a DS-compatible memory card.

The homebrew creation, which is cleverly named DSTwitter, isn't that easy to install though, unless you speak Spanish that is.

Free online text and web page language translation tools, such as Babel fish and Google Translate, however, do a half-decent job at converting the text and Mashable.com has written a simple three-step guide of how to proceed and get blogging on your hand-held as quick as possible.

Now you just to have to find an R4DS or a similar card to unzip the application onto.
