Twiggit | Twitter Meets Digg [Review]
Twiggit is an interesting yet simple concept; it’s described as “Twitter meets Digg” & that’s exactly what it is.
How does it work?
At a time interval chosen by you, Twiggit will check for the last article that you’ve dugg on Digg & then update your Twitter status to reflect it.
What does your Twitter status change to?
Your status will reflect the title and link to the article you digg on Digg (as pictured below). Twiggit can tweet every article you digg or only the articles that you personally submit to Digg.
How do I stop it?
Best of all, Twiggit can be “turned off” at any time by simply logging in to your account & clicking on “stop” (as you can see below).
I’d like to say that there’s more to Twiggit to that but there’s not, it’s really just as simple as it sounds. Do you think there should be more to it? Is this something that you would consider using? Let me know what you think.
In my own opinion, I feel that Twiggit is a great tool that everyone can use. I love the fact that I can now share my digg findings automatically on Twitter as well as FriendFeed. It’s very easy to setup & use, what more do you need?
If you find this tool useful, show the love & digg it here; this also gives you the chance to test it out!
As an added bonus, if you’re looking for more of a Digg meets Twitter (as opposed to the Twitter meets Digg), you should check out Truemors.
In their own words:
“The purpose of Truemors is to democratize and spread information. We made it so that people don’t need to be a journalist or even run a web site or blog to “tell the world.” We also made it so that you don’t have to scan hundreds of sources to find the most interesting and useful information. Think of Truemors as a friction-free news site.”
Truemors’ menu header resembles Digg in many ways & the way the truemors are setup (kind of like micro-blog posts) resembles Twitter. Also, a “truemor” = breaking rumors + news, pretty clever huh?
Truemors gives you four methods to post something:
- You can submit content online by using the form on their site. You’ll need to enter your name & email address and then select a category. Your name will appear in the truemor. Also, there’s a 350-character limit.
- You can text “2020” to “55022″. The last four digits of your phone number will appear in the truemor. The 350 character limit still remains.
- You can call 1-650-329-2020 & leave a thirty second voicemail. The last four digits of your phone number will appear in the truemor.
- Lastly you can send an email to [email protected]. Once again, there is a 350 character limit. The two characters before the @ in your email address will appear in the truemor.
Out of the two services, I’m favoring Twiggit just because it’s less work & easier to use. What about you?
Update: Twiggit is history.
