26 tools to make you a better Twitterer

May 12, 2008

One of the things that makes Twitter great is that it’s a “classic” open internet application — a fairly straightforward application with an API that allows other creative people to build enhancements on top of it.

The following list includes some of my favorite enhancements, tools and mashups to make Twitter go that extra mile.

    Great post Chuck, I’m definitely bookmarking it. šŸ™‚ I just ordered one of the EatSleepTweet shirts last week, I can’t wait to get it. Their customer service is outstanding.

    Thanks Jess! I’m thinking about getting one of the shirts too — just in case anybody is unclear how much of a nerd I am šŸ˜€

    You are missing TweetDeck that is very good!

    Yep — I need to go back and update the list; I’ve recently started using TweetDeck myself, and it definitely rocks.
