Ten Newest Apps for Twitter and My Favorite is Listorious

November 1st, 2009

My Fav is listoriousWell, it has been more than a year that I compiled a post “Every Twitter Term and Tool I Can Find”.

October 27th, 2008

Twitter Tools I can findI’ve been very intrigued with twitter. It has been my source of interaction for the most part – I work on the computer day and night (ya I know I should get out more!). And I also use my iPhone to tweet while watching television. For those who don’t know, Twitter is a micro-blogging application that allows you to send updates (aka “tweets”) to the Twitter website and your twitter friends, similar to the Facebook status (with a limit of 140 character input). You can find and interact with people with similar interests. You can follow them, and others can follow you. It’s an instant-messaging-meets-social-media-networking tool.
