Twister is a "fully decentralized P2P microblogging platform built from free software implementations of Bitcoin and BitTorrent protocols"[1].

Twister has a desktop client which can also serve as a localhost webserver you browse to and get a Twitter-like experience.

The main focus of the project is censorship-resistance [allegedly. No citation given on purpose. Read the source :p]. There's no way to delete anything. Your typos will live forever.

Twisterio is a read only web gateway for public twists.

It's unclear who runs the service, so if you're looking for something specific, best is to access it via Tor :)
