Twitter Apps


Twitter..a.k.a SMS of the Internet, since its start in 2006 has gained its popularity and used by millions of people world-wide.  According to a statistics there were 18 million unique twitter users (until end of 2009) and lists is growing significantly. It is simple, yet powerful way to communicate with your followers. Being a free Social networking and micro-blogging service tweeter enables users to send and receive text-based posts of up to 40 characters which will be displayed on author's  profile page and also displays the message to authors followers page. Other than just tweeting an update, we could use twitter effectively. It has lot of third-party applications (126 windows alone) categorized under 26 categories and the list is growing much. The list includes many creative and cool applications that can be very useful and productive in our working environment and here are my list of best top 10 tweeter applications.
Twitter Feed is a simple module that displays a configurable number of updates (Tweets) based on the Twitter Search API.  The result is a powerful part that enables you to have a great deal of control over which updates are posted to your website.  Want to filter out certain hash tags?  No problem.  Want to only display items with links?  It's an option.  Want to apply a custom CSS styling to the rendered links? Tweet updates are rendered is CSS-friendly DIV tags and can be easily styled to fit the look and feel of your website. Getting started is very simple, sign up and add the services that you need RSS consolidated and thats it..
Readtwit filters your twitter feed to links only, resolves link destinations and publishes the content as an RSS feed. You can then use any feed reading software / service to read twitter posted content along with the rest of your feeds. Duplicate links in the same time-frame are grouped together. No more retweets overwhelming your link browsing activity.
