Twitter This and Twitter That | 150+ Apps, Firefox Addons and Links [List]
This list is not up-to-date; it was written in June 2008.
Please check out the Twitter Tools section of this blog; it is updated frequently with new tools & applications.
Lately, it seems like everyone is a Twitter addict. So, I decided to make a list of Twitter related sites, desktop & mobile applications & browser extensions. If you don’t already have an account on Twitter, I suggest you get one ASAP since it seems to be taking over the Web.
Of course, since many Twitter related sites & applications are popping up on a daily basis, this list will probably be outdated by tomorrow night! So, obviously I couldn’t get every single site/app/extension on this list, but It’s a good start. I also will not be able to keep this list updated so, a lot of links may be outdated! Sorry!
For those who don’t know, Twitter is a “social networking and microblogging service utilizing instant messaging, SMS or a web interface.”
I spent about 5 days researching & creating this list so, I hope you all can make great use of it! If you see something I left out & you feel it should be on this list, please leave it in a comment (I left out blog plugins on purpose).
