About

The Name

A "2" was added to the Easy Chirp name in mid-2013 after a full relaunch (and rewrite). The relaunch was due to major updates needed including a change in the Twitter API. A successful Kickstarter campaign was run in order to help funding for the relaunch.

Originally, the app was named "Accessible Twitter". Many of the articles and awards cited on this website use this name. Learn more about the name change.
