TWiT is working on a more organized developer program which will provide some guidance for creating TWiT apps on any platform. The program will set some creative guidelines, share standards, and give registered developers a direct line to TWiT Engineering to assist with issues. In return, developers who create great apps will be able to have them featured on an "Approved Apps" page on the TWiT.tv site.
Stay tuned for more details as this program becomes a reality!
Welcome to the wonderful world of developing apps for TWiT. This page will curate the various resources available to developers, as well as provide links to streams and other information.

TWiT logo in Adobe Illustrator format.
Please use this version of the logo. The old version of the logo with the inner ring, rounded feet on the bug, lighter blue, and "futuristic" font should not be used any longer.
Please try to refrain from adding filters, changing the colors, etc. You're welcome to separate the bug from the blue background. If using the TWiT text, please center the text below the bug or use the text centered to the right of the bug.
TWiT's official colors in RGB are:
- Black - #231f20

(If someone wanted to eyeball these and come up with PMS specifications, that would be great!)

TWiT Show Abbreviations
These are the short codes for each active show. These work for determining album art URLs, feed URLs, and show URLs. There are some exceptions on shows/feeds that have been renamed over time (such as tsh and ttg).
Note: Although it's called "TN2", we use "tn2n" as the behind-the-scenes code abbreviation because ending this with a number may cause issues for when episode numbers are printed immediately after the abbreviation.
