In particular, Tyler Flowers has managed to display the timeline of his Twitter account in the iOS 5 notification center . The method is to access the iOS 5 file system, copy the widget and install it on the varmobile path. Then perform a couple of actions using MobileTerminal and restart the terminal.

The interesting thing will be to see if Apple will not take long and enable this possibility for programmers to make use of it or not, enabling the function from their own application preferences, which would give a lot of play to the new iOS 5 notification center.
