I simply can't find the option that'll let me use proxies with hummingbird. and I think this might be dangerous. I don't want twitter to ban my ip. please guys help me out here.

Peace.!! :photo:

you can try WideCap/FreeCap/SocksCap or Proxy Firewall system proxifiers with your proxies
(in theory you can configure these programs to force Hummingbird to use proxies)

i say in theory, because it can be it won't work at all

with WideCap/FreeCap/SocksCap you can proxify programs one by one and Proxy Firewall will proxify your whole system

i don't have any of these programs installed on my PC atm, but i can remember it wasn't too hard to configure them (they're very user friendly), you'll need a working HTTP(S), SOCKSv4 or SOCKSv5 proxy then you need to select the path where the executable of the program (Hummingbird) is located in your system and roughly that's all

once you've installed the programs, i think you can figure it out by yourself and/or read their FAQ, but there's no guarantee it will work for sure!

edited: but before you do anything, if i were you i'd check if Hummingbird is still working or not, because it uses API and since 1th Sept (twitter is switching to OAuth), there are a fair number of twitter apps which have issues now
